Quick, very useful link

Someone on the publisher-side of the industry has started a blog about the workings of the industry itself. It's relatively new, and it is, imho, absolutely critical information for people who want to make a living in this business if they want to understand some of how it works. It's here. In particular, I loved his explanation of sell-through, what it means, and why high sell-through is not necessarily a good thing.

Also, a couple of comments about yesterday's post have cropped up on LJ; I've added them to the original post, because they're both very good, and I thought I'd also mention them here in case people haven't seen them. jmeadows has posted an eloquent, and less personally focused response than minehere. matociquala, whose name I just mistyped five times, has posted her personal take on both issues here, and it is pure Bear :).

This discussion -- in its many parts -- makes me realize, once again, that the whole industry seems to think about what they do and how they do it one heck of a lot more than me. And now I can't decide if I'm feeling inadequate about it... *g*
