Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
On the other hand, the completely free market emerged out of thin air.

On the broader topic, there is no reason for the publishing industry not to go the same way as the record industry. They're less powerful anyway, and while amazon is trying to wall off - what's the term -the info space? (the ability to gain knowledge of something's existence) - I don't think they'll succeed. Once we start getting sophisticated search agents, proprietary databases like amazon lose their utility, and authors can go solo.

you are the media you consume.
