Wall Street Journal Comments

This content has been archived. It may no longer be accurate or relevant.

Last night, PG posted about an interesting article in the Wall Street Journal about Amazon and the publishing business. Click Here if you haven’t seen it.

He just checked the comments to the WSJ article, expecting to see great galloping herds of rampant ADS.

PG was pleasantly surprised to see the large majority of the comments were supportive of Amazon and several talked about their good experiencing self-publishing. If you’ve already read the original WSJ article, here’s a direct link to the Comments that worked for PG, but may not work for others.

PG isn’t certain how the WSJ paywall might affect others.

UPDATE: Mike shared a paywall workaround in the comments: “Doing a Google search on the post title gave me a link to both the full article and the comments.”

The title of the OP is:‘They Own the System’: Amazon Rewrites Book Industry by Marching Into Publishing

  1. PG: your direct link didn’t work for me – it hit the paywall – but doing a Google search on the post title gave me a link to both the full article and the comments.

  2. Currently the article can be found in google search results, and if you click on that you are seen as coming from a google search results page, so you can view it in it’s entirety.

    142 comments (so far) and I did not see even one mention of the pleasing heft or delirious smell of paper. Lots of happy Kindle users though.
