Funding Models for Books

July 17th, 2010

Paying for books per copy “developed in response to the invention of the printing press”, and a Readercon panel discussed some alternatives.

Existing alternatives, as noted in Cecilia Tan’s summary of the panel:

  • the donation model
  • the Kickstarter model
  • the “ransom” model
  • the subscription or membership model
  • the “perks” model
  • the merchandising model
  • the collectibles model
  • the company or support grant model
  • the voting model
  • the hits/pageviews model

Any synergies with Kevin Kelly’s Better than Free?
