The internet early was like those days after the Gutenberg Bible... printing presses! Anyone could do it! Then the American West (as in Wild) and ten the Internet... All of these have one thing in common: an open early playing field with little initial competition that EVENTUALLY fell to organization and consolidation (remember all those early buys and more buys, etc) until near monopolies remain. We are at that stage now. That said, even in these days where things might appear fixed, those who stay and play still have a chance to success. This is not rah rah speech, just a reminder that there are still book publishers, the Wild West is still pretty wild and prosperous, and the internet is not yet locked up in corporate. Hang in there, Bucky!
