    you're delusional if you think it'll free people from the big publishers. Hell, they're already salivating over the idea of selling books that expire when the new edition comes out.

    Also, the cost of developing a book doesn't change because it's electronic, just the cost of printing it.

      And I'm quite confident I'm being realistic.

      And no need to put words in my mouth — I said nothing of being free from the big publishers. In fact, I believe that they are part of the solution to the benefit of everyone.

      And neither did I say anything about the cost of the books/content.

      Chaos. It's not just a theory.
