Talk:Disruptive Book Publishing: Amazon and Google
What does "mean estimated price elasticity" mean? In general, the math can be overwhelming. Could you represent it graphically?
Use examples to explain the distinction between online and physical publication
Last sentence of summary paragraph at the top of the page is largely meaningless.
Context around quote at the beginning of Background would be nice
- "Free content is a special case that has risen" is awkward* Agreed, fixed
- "These lower costs of barrier of entry has significantly challenged" should be "have"* Thanks, fixed.
The emergence of e-books has had one other lasting impact on a market in the realm of books: Libraries." I appreciate the gravity of the situation, but "Libraries" does not need to be capitalized
- "This fear never became reality." Proof?* The rest of the paragraph explains why book prices went up.
Expand the Amazon section
Value of Publishers...?
Citation in intro would be nice, especially since you use the word "our" in the first sentence.
Not quite sure about the Value of Publishers section. What does it mean?
The Amazon section could use a bit more info. Brian
Could use more pictures, preferably of Spiderman
It would nice to see some specific policy recommendations for this issue and/or some commentary on how this ties into public policy. Pvallone (talk) 15:39, 29 April 2015 (EDT) (with wjm, bs, ben, derenge)
Most self-published content will have less than 10 readers
That statistic is made up but I suspect it to be correct. A discussion of the officiation of content that nobody will consume is relevant. If everyone is published, nobody is read. Easy money though; publishing EBooks is easy. --Wjm (talk) 15:41, 29 April 2015 (EDT)
I don't think the background info should just be introduced with a giant quote... Some independent content to accompany it would be nice.
I'm guessing that the value of publishers section isn't finished yet...
