Great quote from Alan Kohler


I love reading Alan Kohler’s thoughts and this one is great.

From Business Spectator (Size Matters article) – http://www.businessspectator.com.au/bs.nsf/Article/Size-matters-pd20090617-T3SPV?OpenDocument&src=sph

Newspapers and magazines have been selling for the same price as iPhone apps for two hundreds years, making many families rich and employing a lot of people.

“When the internet came along they suddenly turned into rabbits in the headlights, unable to think of what to do and incapable of cooperating with each other. So in the absence of a strategy, they simply didn’t charge at all.

“As a result, journalism is now free. Sudoku, however, costs $1.19.”
