read:write:sell:buy

Eoin Purcell has been thinking about if:book's READ:WRITE research for Arts Council England. Read his post HERE. He wonders why we don't say more about making money online, a big subject which deserves a more thorough response than I can give now, but a starting point for us was that while the business models of the publishing and bookselling industries have been thrown into turmoil, most writers make so little money from sales of their work on paper that the web can only be seen as giving authors more direct means to promote themselves and their work to whatever markets they are interested in.
