Book Update (and the Gift Economy)

books sorted by color (not mine)Word from Peachpit Press is that Amazon has not received delivery of the book and their late-December estimates are merely a CYA maneuver – they should receive (and begin shipping) copies by the end of this week.

Meanwhile, check out this post by Long Tail author Chris Anderson (A Flight across Europe for Five Pounds is Indistinguishable from Magic). It doesn’t contain any information that I, and probably you, hadn’t heard many times before, and yet it somehow clarifies the overall methodology of the gift economy better than any similar summary I’ve seen. Now can someone explain to me how all those amazing Mac freeware apps out there don’t land their hard-working developers in penury? I want to give cool stuff away too!

And since I’ve already included two wikipedia links in this entry, why not add a link to the new motion graphics wiki that’s all the buzz? Look for me to be listed there once I’ve completed a current company changeover (first up this week: long overdue reel update!).
