I know, I know. It’s a ridiculous question. Ideas are worth nothing; execution is all.
Thing is, I have one that just won’t get out of my brain. Briefly: I’ve been in the ebook-publishing world for a (very) few months now. It’s poorly designed. I think retailer/distributor people like Amazon, B&N, Kobo, & such are unnecessary blockage/gatekeepers between readers & producers of content. I also think they take huge chunks of cash away from authors.
And I think all that can be fixed, easily, from a technical standpoint. Couple of problems: (1) I don’t want to do it myself, and (2) I totally suck at convincing anyone of anything, especially in person. Which is important because this is one of those ideas that needs buy-in. From indie publishers and authors, though, not corporations. So it’s not totally impossible.
Anyway. I did this 3-part “Death of Amazon” thing at my other blog a while back. If you’re interested, feel free to steal the idea. Or talk to me about it, or forward it to somebody else. Or tell me to STFU because you’re busy and you wish I hadn’t stuck it into your brain.
That is all.
