I have a series of posts up on my other blog, Outrun Change, discussing the radical changes in how books, music, and video are distributed today without having to use a traditional middleman. There is a dramatic shift when it doesn’t cost anything to make and distribute one more copy of something.
This doesn’t just impact writers and musicians. This has a huge impact on nonprofits that want to get their message and resources out, or businesses that want to start producing materials for education and promotion.
Check these out:
- Q: what happened when the marginal cost of producing and delivering one more item is zero?
- What does radical change in technology and mass media mean to those of us who are undiscovered, unpublished, or small fry wanting to follow our own path?
- It is a blast being alive today, or isn’t technology cool?
