Interview starts at 12:01 and ends at 43:50

“Everything with books orbits  discoverability. That’s the billion-dollar problem. That’s the problem that Apple has never figured out yet. That’s the problem that Amazon has sort of figured out.”

WTF? What’s the Future and Why It’s Up to Us by Tim O’Reilly


Thanks to Preston Edmands and Lindsay Babayan of Flyte New Media for the all-new design for my show notes page. And to Rich Brooks, Flyte’s founder and president, who is helping me consider initiatives to grow the TKC audience. His excellent digital marketing podcast, Agents of Change, is a must if you are looking to expand your own reach via the Internet. Rich also convenes an annual Agents of Change conference in Portland, Maine, which I have attended regularly and I ways learn lots when I go. I think of it as a mini South By Southwest by the Sea, and this year it will be held on September 20th and 21st.

Music for my podcast is from an original Thelonius Monk composition named "Well, You Needn't." This version is "Ra-Monk" by Eval Manigat on the "Variations in Time: A Jazz Perspective" CD by Public Transit Recording" CD.
