What I really wonder is, is Demand Studios, which is a Demand Media property and sources eHow, which makes about one fifth of DM's revenue, profitable?
What I mean is, they pay lots of money for content - more than just the few bucks to writers - and take human intuition out of the equation of content producing. As I wrote elsewhere, it's like buying all the lottery tickets in town.
Does it work? I don't think it can. And if it did, DM would probably not be going public.
Not to take an off-topic topic too much back on topic, but...I think it's a sign that the rev share business model is profitable for individuals but for big business, not so much.
