All right -
Those of your who know me well (hello fellow students and faculty) with my current rants and all are aware that I am skeptical and scared of the digital revolution going on. I refuse to even consider giving any of my writing and art away for free.
I'm so aware of the results of digital piracy. I'm guilty (in the past - not currently) of it.
All of my students have a very cavalier attitude about it.
Why shouldn't I be scared and skeptical? How do you make money when:
a) it's priced cheap as crap (like giving it away anyway, and b) 5,000 people could own it when only one bought it?
What's new technology-wise that should convince me to change my mind? Why should I (with bills and a mortgage to pay) give ANY of my work away when I'm a known commodity, not a start-up business like my students would be?
So, talk to me.
Convince me to change my attitude. Agree with me. Talk to me. I want to know.
The publishing world is going to change more and I don't want to be left in the dust.
Help make me a 21st Century Creator!!
