I just bought Numerati

Continuing my passion for data driven businesses (see related blog posts here), I just bought a new book, Numerati.

Why did I buy this read, beyond the fact it fits out interests? His blog helps. Through the blog, I get the sense of what the book will say and it seems to be what I was interested in. In other words, his blog provided a weak form solution to the moral hazard problem. This got me into thinking about tools for book publishers.

Is there a TopSpin equivalent to help writers connect with their fans? Beyond blogging, is there other ways that an author can reach out to his audiences? How about a tool that aggregates all the potential book tour locations and provides an easy way for authors to plan their tour? More interestingly, is there a way for readers to contribute in future versions of the book and a tool can help them to provide the proper payment mechanisms to reward the contributors?

I think many possibilities exist if we think deeper about it. I have a candidate in mind who has the potential to do this in this part of the world: Bookjetty. Let's see if they have the vision to do this, rather than remaining to be just another book community.

Bonus reading: From the author's blog, I discovered his 2006 article on how mathes will transform our world.
