Markets in Everything: Books of Blog Posts

You can turn your blog into a book here, here and here.

Kind of sad how the techies have been completely incompetent at figuring out a business model for new online media like blogs and podcasts, so all these bloggers and podcasters are stuck going the traditional route of putting out a book or online simulacra of outdated forms, like ebooks or audiobooks, instead of being able to make money directly off their online media. And it's really just about the money, nobody actually thinks the book, ebook, or audiobook are better formats. It's just that hose are existing formats that people are already used to paying for, but mainly it's easier to charge for a $3 book than a 5 cent blog post through the antiquated payment system, so everybody falls back to those thoroughly outdated formats. Micropayments are the solution, but until somebody is smart enough to build that, we're stuck with these retrograde solutions that are frankly ridiculous in the internet era.
