Good evening on this the twenty seventh day of December in the year of our Lord 2016.
I’m sorry I missed the last few days. Things have been really crazy. On the plus side, I did the interview with Russell Newquist:
It was a great conversation, and while it did digress a few times—all conversations which involve me as a participant digress, it seems to be an iron law of conversation—I think it hit on a number of interesting subjects and I found Russell’s perspective quite interesting.
I also suspect he’s right that advertising as a business model is probably going to be increasingly non-viable to support writing, and that with distribution coming ever closer to being free, the big problem that we’re going to have to solve is discoverability.
