(Although S&S didn’t seem to be all THAT supportive to you from what you wrote in this column back in June last year! No, that isn’t fair, I only had a small snapshot based on your one or two blog posts about it.) Unlike Amazon, traditional publishers do more than printing and distribution.

It is never a good idea to have so much consolidation in an industry. We benefit from vertical integration, but only to a certain point.

I found my way here because Amazon now has the RSS feed for all your Reuters posts on your author page. Also, Amazon is using your Wikipedia biography for your author profile. I would keep an eye on that, or consider providing your own. I don’t know how often Amazon uploads and refreshes content from Wikipedia. Nothing implied about Wikipedia, of course, merely an FYI!
