It seems like successful independent bookstores don't really compete with Amazon anyways (as you allude to). I doubt there are a lot of people that are at a bookstore because they don't know what a Kindle is.

I'm just going to post this wikipedia article here so some of you can educate yourself on why Ghetto is not the best term to use in this context.

@Todd Dunning lol
It seems like it would be better to start in a niche vertical that nobody else is paying attention to. Otherwise there is no apparent competitive advantage here.

Lots of people have written about what Sean Parker wrote about. If you want to jump on board with his narcissism, then yes, what he said is VERY IMPORTANT.

@Nicole Shore I very much agree with this. (and also we met once in NYC.. Hey!)

The last reason should be a lot more than a half of one.

I agree with you. But "Social Media is Bullshit" is hyperbolic and is also meant to attract attention as opposed to saying that social media in and of itself it bullshit. It just gives me the impression that you are using the very sales oriented half truth tactics that you are attempting to debunk to market your book.

I wasn't really trying to be rude. I just don't really understand what you are getting at. I suppose I should read your book. But this article does not clarify for me what your thesis is. People game social media + their are a bunch of hucksters out there hence social media is bullshit? What space doesn't have hucksters and gaming? I can't think of one..
@JoeDiNardo Keep in mind that this guy who makes his living debunking people who make their living talking about social media. I think the only business model here is pageview journalism. "Social media" and "dying" is great to have in a headline, but it appears that is as deep as it goes..
just a quick correction, GoPollGo raised $425K - not million.

Thanks for the insightful and poignet piece.
But has advertising really existed for "thousands of years"?
The colors are to similar to each other and do not create enough contrast.

@sarahlacy @arrington That makes sense. But I think there are many ways that this will backfire on businesses who favor people with high Klout scores. I don't think the idea of getting different levels of customer service attention based on your Klout scores will ever play well with the average consumer.

@richarddjordan @In_themiddle Yes. Paid shills are an important part of this. I want someone to find me a single scientists that has no connections to the fossil fuel industry AND disagrees with GW consensus. I am sure there are a couple. But very, very hard to find.
