SPOS #185 – Media Hacks #23

Posted by

Welcome to episode #185 of Six Pixels Of Separation – The Twist Image Podcast. This is also episode #23 of Media Hacks. We have the whole gang present (with the exception of Chris Brogan who was too busy at CES – lucky guy!). Along with some interesting/new New Year announcements, we deep dive on the Nexus One (aka the Google Phone) which leads us into a deep conversation about data, information and the great race towards a mobile society. We also look at all of the hooplah at CES over e-readers (a topic that is near and dear to all of our hearts). As if that were not enough, we also discuss the value of content (and its perceived value) in a world where everybody wants everything for free. Enjoy the conversation…

Here it is: Six Pixels Of Separation – The Twist Image Podcast – Episode #185 – Host: Mitch Joel.

  1. Julien’s idea about selling a single eBook for $5,000 isn’t that bad of an idea. I wouldn’t create a one copy for $5,000 paradigm, but you could probably find 100 people willing to pay you $50 for a book that they – and only they – could get a copy of.

  2. Apologies… I forgot to add… You ask for the money upfront and only write it when you meet your desired level of patronage. Will it take $20,000 to make it worth your time? Charge $100 and wait until 200 patrons pony up the cash.

  3. Joel,
    Sweet podcast, and thanks for bringing up our book and the conversation on Chris’ blog. Also loved the idea of 5k ebooks…something I’m thinking about.
    Would love to continue that discussion with you sometime.
