The Anti-Kindle-Blog Round Up

As my own post might indicate there's been a lot of mixed feelings about Amazon's new feature to allow subscriptions to any blog to be sold on the Kindle. Levi Asher signed LitKicks up saying "Amazon appears to be showing conviction, focus and flexibility in the way they are evolving the product" while Ed Champion lambasted the program saying "I cannot possibly give away so many of my rights for a mere 30% of the cut." This lead to an intense debate between the two of them on Twitter (@asheresque and @drmabuse respectively). Follow the Reader probably offered the most in depth criticism of the service. After consideration of the arguments, I have decided not to offer this blog on the Kindle. Not that I think there would have been any great demand for it.
