What price freedom?

Euen Semple

What price freedom? Having social tools doesn''t guarantee change. There is nothing inevitable about it. Real change requires consistent changes in behavior and often manifesting those changes in behavior in public spaces takes considerable courage. All it takes to maintain a repressive national regime is to shoot the occasional blogger. All it takes to maintain control over your corporate messaging is to make dissent a sackable offence.

Cheap books on learning worth the price

Jay Cross

Today I paid my $9.99 and started devouring free books on Amazon Kindle Unlimited. I spend on average of $40 a month on hardcopy books, so this seems like a steal.

Gas Prices and Support for Trains

Nine Shift

Gas prices have had little to do with the transition from cars to trains. And moving forward, gas prices will continue to have little to do with the move to trains. Gas price is the holy grail for Boomers, the lingua franca, the gold standard on prices, etc. .

A (so far) suckless printer at a good price

Doc Searls

The price is currently $59.99, which could hardly be better, since Consumer Reports top-rates it over Canons, Brothers and HPs, and gives surveyed prices from $129 to $179 (both, oddly, at Walmart). This is far below Consumer Reports’ reported prices of $127 – $199 (both Walmart).

Gas Prices: Americans in deep water

Nine Shift

Americans are in deep water with no escape over high gas prices. America was building trains, the answer to both high gas prices and saving the environment. In the 2008 gas price crisis, people took to light rail and trains and big plans were made to build more light rail and trains.

How to avoid high Gas Prices

Nine Shift

Think of the benefits of higher gas prices: more lives saved. In my state, my calculation is that for every penny gas prices go up, someone's life is spared. Higher gas prices help people drive less, and the fatality statistics prove it. How to avoid high gas prices?

Time to Celebrate High Gas Prices Again

Nine Shift

As the price goes over $4 here, am celebrating high gas prices again. Til then, the voters are getting what they asked for- - - high gas prices. . It can only mean fewer deaths, less pollution, and discussion on transportation. Some 70% of our oil imports are wasted on cars, killing the environment. And Americans, just 4% of the world's population, contribute almost 25% of the world's pollution.

Text-to-Speech Costs – Licensing and Pricing

Tony Karrer

Text-to-Speech Examples In this post, we will look more closely at costs of Text-to-Speech and issues around TTS Voice Licensing and Pricing. The subject of TTS voice licensing and pricing is important because it helps e-learning practitioners understand which TTS tools they are legally allowed to use for their specific applications as well as letting them estimate the costs and pricing models of using these TTS tools. Personal licenses are sold for a low fixed price.

Value based pricing is at the heart of the future of professional services

Ross Dawson

In my first book Developing Knowledge-Based Client Relationships: The Future of Professional Services the final chapter was titled Value-Based Pricing: Implementing New Revenue Models. Pricing by value rather than time is clearly a central aspect to building true knowledge-based relationships, since knowledge should be measured by the value of its application rather than time spent by professionals. Value-based pricing is not always the best approach.

U.S. Drugs, Canadian Prices

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Moreover, significant demand for new drugs has allowed them to dramatically increase prices (remember, price is not set according to 'cost of production' but by 'willingness to pay'). The pharaceuticals would get their patents, open research facilities in Canada (a promise never kept), and agree to be subject to a ceiling on prices. drug prices and roll their eyes. Perhaps they believe, like the author, that a limit on drug prices is some sort of 'transfer of wealth'.

Optimal starting prices for negotiations and auctions

Mind Hacks

An article in the latest edition of Current Directions in Psychological Science reviews studies on the best starting points to increase the final price in either negotiations or auctions. It turns out that negotiations, where several parties are invited to discuss a price, and auctions, where people can include themselves by jumping in when they want, are quite different psychologically.

Local Bookstores, Social Hubs, and Mutualization ? Clay Shirky

Clay Shirky

Last month, the American Booksellers Association published an open letter to the Justice Department , asking Justice to investigate Wal-Mart, Target, and Amazon after they lowered prices of best-selling books to under $10. Lower prices will lead to higher prices, and cheap books threaten to reduce the range of ideas in circulation. Landlords may prefer to hold empty spaces at nominally high rents than re-price.
