    A friend of mine just emailed me one of your articles from a while back. I read that one a few more. Really enjoy your blog. Thanks.

    Took me a while to “get” your style but now I’m a fan! Just finished reading “2011″, great book it is. The beauty I think is to really look at all these 70 over ideas and start connecting the dots. I personally am inspired to work on something (like to write a book?). We shall see.

    Your view on the publishing business is brutally honest. I wonder if you have one for the music industry too. My gut feel says that it is just as senseless (I happen to have a band and want to publish music too).

    Keep up the great work. Thanks!

While the people at my publisher were nice folks, the process was mind-boggling — slow, unresponsive, process vs. market focus, and big decisions made without every telling me, the author. Wow, imagine if we treated clients that way. Looking forward to reading your latest book.

    Hey, you. top_book on twitter pointed me to your free book but that offer didn’t snag me (frankly, it sounds sketchy; work on that!) so I came here. Hopped around and finally read *all* this post — and, dammit, it was posted in APRIL, so I demand: WTF is part two already?!!?

    Will be posting a link to this on my (of course!) blog, where I tear the print pearl-clutching future-fearers new ones almost every day with language they don’t like.
