dude, THE WORST!! (wooo—flashback to my time of capitals) but i could not get into this book at all. if you are really into licensing digital content, you might really really like this book. me, i have no digital content in my life, for licensing or otherwise. so, to me, this book was wicked boring, and wholly theoretical; like reading a manual called “care and maintenance of your time machine.” just not my bag. and frankly, i don’t want it to be my bag…because i am sure it is one of those skills, like carpentry or doctoring, that puts you in awkward situations all the freaking time. you are just trying to relax and enjoy breaking bad and suddenly someone wants you to come over and license their digital content (or build them a gazebo), or you are enjoying a nice dinner at a scandinavian restaurant and suddenly there is a crisis situation: “is there a digital content licensor in the house??,” and you have to ‘fess up, even though you really want to shout, “just leave me to my venison, please!!” i can’t handle the frequent late-night calls or being cornered at any of the numerous cocktail parties i attend and assaulted with shop-talk. if you need any digital content licensed, call some other nerd.

this feels gauche, but when i announced i was starting a blog, everyone assured me this is a thing that is done. i’m not on facebook, i’ve never had a cellphone or listened to a podcast; so many common experiences of modern life are foreign to me, but i’m certainly struggling financially, so if this is how the world works now, i’d be foolish to pass it up. any support will be received with equal parts gratitude and bewilderment.
