But wacky. I agree with the blogger's point: the confusion is the salient takeaway from that discussion, and provides a lot of insight into the book industry. They're acting like idiots because they honestly cannot get past the book as a physical object. I suppose I shouldn't be surprised, yet I am. Some days, I feel like there are no adults out there anymore, just older children. I suspect that this is only going to get worse over time.
There was also a moderately amusing blogger who pointed to a May 20 FT article in which a Penguin guy was saying how important it was to sell on as many platforms as possible to avoid piracy becoming entrenched. Because, funny? Right?
But a whole lot less commentary on this topic than I would have expected. Maybe I'm not searching for this stuff the right way.
