  1. In the beginning of e-publishing, I was fearful that it would go the way of public comments – lowest common denominator. But, as I should have expected, it turns out that there is a lot of money to be made, and the competition has kept the bar up pretty high. This recent move on Amazon’s part is a step in the right direction in my opinion.


  2. I got stuck on the blog post’s mistaken hyphen, a few sentences in: “Share the first poorly-researched blog post you can find!” Later there is another mistaken hyphen after an adjective that ends with “ly” and modifies an adjective. Funny to encounter on an article about Amazon starting up copyedit policing.
