Don't call it a comeback

Tom was in Montréal the other day for a conference and we recorded a podcast episode reviewing what has happened in the two years that have passed since the last episode.

In this episode we talk about, amongst other things:

  • How fine arts and literary fiction projects are generally more successful than software projects as they are more likely to achieve what they aimed to achieve than software.
  • The industry cites ‘commercial viability’ without actually looking at what’s commercially viable.
  • The gap between what people clearly want and what is being provided.
  • How the publishing industry should be doing more experimentation that’s explicitly targeted at the mainstream.
  • How next to nothing has changed in two years.
  • Value and business models.
  • People are hungry for new and interesting things.

Warning! Iffy acoustics and we are well out of practice at this podcast thing.
