Gans doesn't have a lot to say about public policy, however. This is really more of a business book suited for industry analysts and business school students. Nonetheless, some of its implications for policy are clear since many of these business model debates boil over into the policy arena.

There was really nothing new or original here, which is probably why it reads so fast. You've already read it elsewhere.Published on December 22, 2012 by Carson
A great book. Easy to read - an excellent explanation of some of the economic characteristics of information and content in an open and networked world.Published on November 24, 2012 by Lucy Montgomery
This is a meaningful, almost unique look at the nature of information and sharing. I learned quite a bit from the book.Published on November 23, 2012 by Clifton B. Chadwick
