but before I go to the Creative Commons Concert


Before the concert on Friday night, I’ll be on stage at the NYPL with my boss (one of many), Chris Anderson. This is the second time I’ve read his book; I liked it the first time; it gets better each time. It should be an interesting event. Tickets here.

    See Nick Carr on debunking

    I commented there

    :I’d say it’s an effect comparable to WalMart’s sales-chain innovations. Yes, it’s real and somewhat important to people in the retail business – but it’s also waaaay overhyped by professional marketers as some sort of democratizing revolution.

    People have also pointed out that big chains being able to shift around more marginal inventory profitably, is not at all the same as the oft-implied little cottage industries. Instead, you can end up with rich getting richer, and sweatshops! (the implications for blog evangelism are then left as an exercise for the reader …)
