How to destroy a brand in one easy (lazy) step - http://moriahjovan.com/mojo...
If you think DIY is just point-and-click, you deserve to fail, IMO. - Guy LeCharles Gonzalez

An American perspective: Is education worth the investment? - http://www.financialpost.com/educati...
Over the past year, the media has begun openly questioning the "American Dream" of home ownership. Are college degrees the next shoe to drop? - Guy LeCharles Gonzalez

The Quintessential Mutants of America - http://www.pheedcontent.com/click...
Coates is at his best when he gets his geek on in a socio-political context. As Hollywood films go, First Class does a great job of mining the "other" subtext of the X-Men mythos. - Guy LeCharles Gonzalez

App Producer Nomad Editions Adapting As It Goes - http://www.foliomag.com/2011...
A very intriguing model for digital magazines, including rev share w/ editors and contributors. Curious to see it beyond tablets, for the iPhone/iPod and Android. - Guy LeCharles Gonzalez

The Persistent and Damaging Myth About Introverts and Marketing - http://blog.writersdigest.com/norules...
Truth. I'm an introvert and have always found it much easier to market others than myself, but the Internetz have definitely made it more palatable. Stop making excuses! - Guy LeCharles Gonzalez

As a teen, I devoured Stephen King, Ian Fleming, Robert McCammon, and even snuck in some V.C. Andrews, which is now shelved as YA. This weekend's kerfuffle is much ado about nothing. - Guy LeCharles Gonzalez

Ebooks on the rise in 2011: Goodreads data supports Amazons recent statement - http://www.goodreads.com/blog...
With ~5m members, Goodreads is sitting on a data goldmine! - Guy LeCharles Gonzalez

Excellent rebuttal to Godin's nonsense. - Guy LeCharles Gonzalez

Increased production doesn't equal increased sales. If anything, this suggests the continuing commodification of books. - Guy LeCharles Gonzalez

Are Librarians, Not Seth Godin, The Ones Missing the Point on Libraries? - http://theunquietlibrarian.wordpress.com/2011...
A much better swing at the point Godin clumsily tried to make. - Guy LeCharles Gonzalez
Guy LeCharles Gonzalez
Good points here, except I totally disagree on Armageddon. Bay actually did a pretty good job of "keeping the train on the tracks" in that one, relatively speaking. - Guy LeCharles Gonzalez

Seth Godin Misses the Point on Libraries, Again. - http://librarianbyday.net/2011...
The problem with daily blogging is that you inevitably touch on areas you're unqualified to discuss, and risk making yourself look silly. Godin does this often; I call it #blogggingtoohard - Guy LeCharles Gonzalez

The New Paradigm: It's the Audience - Charlie McCurdy - Blogs B2B @ FolioMag.com - http://www.foliomag.com/2011...
"One under-recognized fact is that B2B digital media is often more about digital outreach than it is about attracting website visitors. Revenues from e-newsletters, webcasts, etc. often equals or exceeds website ad revenue, and typically a large minority of website traffic comes from e-newsletter click-throughs. Increasingly, our marketing customers were willing to pay a lot to reach just the right people. Publishing and trade show brands were still important, but audience segmentation was becoming the key to happy customers, better ROI and expanded margins. Further, because our competitors couldn't begin to match these services, we could price based on value rather than cost." - Guy LeCharles Gonzalez

End of the Free Ride at Feedbooks? - http://jimhanas.com/post...
As long as the submission process is smooth, most self-publishers will leverage as many channels as possible, but the real question is will they attract enough customers to remain viable? - Guy LeCharles Gonzalez

Are Greek Myths the Next Trend for Teens? - http://www.mediabistro.com/galleyc...
Please, no; Greek mythology is so played out. If it has to be white, at least go Norse! I'm still trying to find some good Afro-Caribbean and Egyptian mythology getting attention. - Guy LeCharles Gonzalez

Don't know the beer, but Kraken Rum is AWESOME! Neat, on ice or with Dr. Pepper. AWESOME!!! - Guy LeCharles Gonzalez

Batman is the only major DC character that can get away with a "realistic" storyline, so this will be interesting to watch. - Guy LeCharles Gonzalez

Why Search Is the Worst Form of Advertising | DigitalNext: A Blog on Emerging Media and Technology - Advertising Age - http://adage.com/article...
Great article on the limitations of Search Engine Marketing, especially for any marketers who believe it’s the Holy Grail for lead gen and are shifting more money in that direction. The whole article is worth reading, and I’m especially intrigued by the potential for Search Retargeting. - Guy LeCharles Gonzalez

That Lifestreaming nonsense is why I don't pay any attention to Rubel. Same clown who touted Second Life as being a marketing gamechanger. - Guy LeCharles Gonzalez

Re: Strategy: Deciphering the Void - http://geofflivingston.com/2011...
"As I noted on Twitter, this was a thought-provoking series that might not inspire a ton of traffic or comments, but is incredibly valuable insight. I'd love to see you collect them into a simple ebook (no pics, just the text and relevant links), and put them up on Amazon for $2.99. I'd buy it! Hell, if you need help, I might be able to do it for you." - Guy LeCharles Gonzalez
