Audio Conversation: 'Bricklin on Technology'

Dan Bricklin is a software industry pioneer, best known as the co-creator of VisiCalc, who has a new book out called "Bricklin on Technology."

We talked last week about a few of the topics he addresses in the book, including how content will be monetized in the future, how creators (whether musicians, writers, or software developers) ought to deal with piracy, and how Dan is promoting and selling his new book (including on Twitter and YouTube). The MP3 is here, or you can just click 'Play' below. (It runs about 25 minutes.)

(Dan is also the host of Mass TLC's monthly Tech Tuesday event. There's one coming up on June 9th in Cambridge.)

Interesting comments on content pricing by Bricklin and Kirsner. Key equation from these 25 minutes: "Give people what they want + make it easy = payment."
Disappointed not to hear more about Ads - don't dismiss Ads just because of a down economy. Also would like to have heard "upfront-single payment" versus "subscription" discussed.
