Re: Publishing: A New Punk Ethos - http://www.disqus.com/people...
"As a fellow former zine publisher, I love that angle! While I think blogging is more akin to zines, it's interesting that ebooks seem to have added a key element that was missing from both: the ability to monetize the publication. Not only do you not have to go into debt, you have a shot to make a small profit and make subsequent publications sustainable. I only published three issues of my zine, and the biggest reason was the time and resources it took weren't ever going to be matched by any financial return. Now what I'd love to see is the rebirth of Factsheet Five, focusing on blogs and ebooks that embrace that old zine mentality." - Guy LeCharles Gonzalez

Social Promotion Earns a Lot of Burrito Traffic, But Misses Other Opportunities - http://blog.mlinc.com/web-ass...
Good analysis. Funny that, in 2011, major initiatives like this still earn "a goose egg on integration." One step forward, two steps back. - Guy LeCharles Gonzalez

Does Google's Magazine Make It a Media Company? - http://www.fastcompany.com/1742306...
The goal doesn't have to be a mass audience to make something a media company. In this age of "we're all publishers," Google is most definitely a media company. - Guy LeCharles Gonzalez

Re: Eisler’s decision is a key benchmark on the road to wherever it is we’re going - http://www.disqus.com/people...
"There's an NPR interview with Jimmy Breslin about his new Branch Rickey bio where he notes the impetus for integration was less about fielding a competitive team and more about tapping into a wider fanbase. Rickey could have pushed for integration while he was in St. Louis, but he didn't until he got to Brooklyn because, as Breslin eloquently noted: "Brooklyn's toes were in the Atlantic Ocean where everyone came from." http://n.pr/hD9567 If "legacy publishers" stopped looking at ebooks as just another format for the books they already publish, and instead as a way to publish and market books the existing brick-and-mortar infrastructure couldn't (or refused to) support, this would be a very different discussion." - Guy LeCharles Gonzalez

Re: The Gray Lady’s 40 Million Dollar Folly - http://www.bradleyrobb.net/on...
"The assumption you're making here, though not as egregiously as some who have commented on it, is that this is the final step in their strategy, set in stone and never to change. It also completely misses the point that print is still NYT's primary source of revenue, and this program is structured to favor that relationship. For now, at least. Rather than doinitrong, I think they're doing it right, launching a strategy that puts a value on their digital content, complements their print content, and positions them to make further adjustments in response to user behavior that won't require this first step to be an all or nothing success. Isn't that exactly what everyone has said publishers need to do? Experiment, fail, rapid iterations, rinse, repear?" - Guy LeCharles Gonzalez
