Coming. But I thought it was pretty spectacular.


I think you need to interpret what I'm saying in a reasonable way.

Kickstarter to publish their recipe book. Positively brilliant. They cut out the publishing houses. Already doubled the amount they were seeking thanks to their acolytes.

Their forthcoming New York location is in prime douche territory.  I was surprised -- but maybe I shouldn't have been.

I hope they don't stint on finding the best production team. They've got the $$$ for it now. It would be shame if there were errors in it.

 

Unlike a self-publishing acquaintance of mine who funds every book herself each time, they pretty much will be making a profit on each sale. (She willfully ignores all her production and distribution costs, as well as the cost of her time.)

Kokonas on why they're self-publishing the Aviary book: https://medium.com/@...ok-e89236ab6ca1


I didn't tip at Per Se either.

While Kokonas's penchant for transparency is laudable, I don't think he's accounting for how making everything transparent just unleashes the demon of Goodhart's Law, and can end up leaving everyone worse off.
