Is free really good?
This piece by Malcolm G. appeared in the New Yorker recently on Priced to Sell, and I find it timely. As I continue to struggle with a couple of business ideas I’m working on, I find it interesting to see this article analyze the differences between free and charging for something (be it goods, ideas, or whatever).
I keep thinking about youtube. All the free entertainment there…but what is the value? Kittens inspired by kittens is a perfect example around the struggle of free.
At least we can all have a little chuckle while pondering really deep thoughts…
