Why some people are in such a dither about indie publishing

It's exciting that we now have the opportunity to share our writing with the whole entire planet.

But it's hardly revolutionary.  I mean, for many years now the world wide web has been making it possible for folks to publish web pages about their cats, or vintage color TVs, or the merits of various regional beers--or whatever else sprang to their merry little minds.  You could spend the rest of your life reading all that shit...

What's different is that now we can charge for the products of our fevered brains. That's what's gotten some folks so upset.

It's all about the money, honey...
