Commentary by Stephen Downes

I'm not sure I get the appeal of Amanda Palmer and I'm not sure of the relevance of showing a topless photo of her on this story about Twitter becoming a marketplace for books, especially since I don't see books per se as having much of a future themselves, but I guess there's no limit to how far we'll turn back the wheel of time in an effort to monetize our conversations with each other. And going topless seems to be what Amanda Palmer does, mostly. Social media as we know it is not long overdue for a disruption. And magazines like this retro article from Bloomberg even more so.
