In an auto-cannibalistic model, user generated content is sold back to the users themselves, parasitically exploiting both corporations: YouTube and Amazon. I emailed the provocateurs behind this, Luc Gross aka "paradoxical print publisher' TRAUMAWIEN and Bernhard Bauch, a "media artist and programmer living in Berlin," to find out how they did it. Q: How hard was it to "hack" the kindle ebook store? A: "Actually there is no real "hack" or involved in the whole thing. "Getting all bytes, words, pieces and parameters together to compile books and tie robots on the same machinery, that sequential upload book to the kindle store is kind of a "hack"."
