soufron: #toc people leaving the room with jason epstein are stupid... the guy is old and tired but what he says is of incredible value

CuriousTwit: RT @soufron: #toc people leaving the room with jason epstein are stupid... the guy is old and tired but what he says is of incredible value

soufron: #toc it's amazing to see such a visionnary getting everything together...

soufron: #toc he does not fall for the stupid "fandom will write books" stuff... sorry the mix culture... sorry the communities... the guy is clear

soufron: #toc jason epstein "litteracy is a difficult product from solitary genius"

soufron: distinguished fiction & nonfiction...will continue 2b written by highly specialized individuals struggling at desks, in seclusion..#TOC

soufron: @mikecane it's the best speak I have heard on the topic in a very long time... #toc

mikecane: @soufron #TOC some of the drivel I read in tweets today made my jaw drop for their utter unthinking stupidity!

soufron: #toc Jason Epstein : customers will pay less, the prices will still cover traditional royalties, the publishers will florish... bravo !

soufron: @totai #toc the fact that he's old and tired makes it even more moving... it's not a "presentation" you stupid ! It's a speech !

mikecane: I understand now! @soufron is French! He has a higher appreciation for things than my fellow base Americans! #TOC

totai: RT @mikecane: I understand now! @soufron is French! He has a higher appreciation for things than my fellow base Americans! #TOC

totai: @soufron thx for the clarification. I think this "speech" should be printed, it's briliant, just hard to follow this late in the day #toc

soufron: @mikecane also I love the fact that he's not presenting his fucking product, but giving us some vision... #toc

mikecane: @soufron He won me with his writers "in seclusion" comment. #TOC Books are NOT a fucking "process," like goddam Kraft Cheese!
