Tim Ferriss, Author, Books, Amazon, BitTorrent

Author Tim Ferriss: The 4-Hour Makeover - Businessweek: "Do you regret the move to Amazon? I’m glad I did it. Publishing is changing so quickly, there’s going to be some fast-hitting bloodbaths in the next few years, and some of the traditional folks who are worried about Amazon should keep a close eye on Silicon Valley. There are little dragons growing very large that they’ll have to contend with as well. You released parts of the book on BitTorrent, right? I did. That was hugely effective. A lot of people think of BitTorrent as a tool for downloading ripped content. It’s actually being used by a lot of content producers—musicians, movie studios—to distribute content. BitTorrent users are actually more inclined to purchase content than the general population."
