    Really enjoyed this interview – thanks Greg and Eliot. I spent time as an entrepreneurial publisher from 2000 – 2002 and much of what Eliot shared either resonated with my experience or triggered memories of that vocational adventure. I would love to share that story with you guys sometime …

    The output of my time as a knowledge worker cum publisher: The Most Amazing Thing (http://www.amazon.com/Most-Amazing-Thing-Robert-Grudin/dp/0965899519). It didn’t (hasn’t) become a smashing best-seller by a long-shot, but…

    – I got to work with one of my intellectual mentors (Robert Grudin),
    – serialized a book on the web – we published it chapter by chapter on the web during 2000 – 2001,
    – produced a product that was critically acclaimed (a finalist (1 of 3) for a Ben Franklin Award for publishing excellence),
    – and was part of creating and working with an innovation ecosystem that, honestly, foreshadowed a good bit of where publishing has evolved to over the last decade +.

    And I still believe it would make for an incredible movie .. we continue to shop it around every now and again.

    Ironically, it is not “start up fiction,” but I think it would sit comfortably alongside Uncommon Stock on a bookshelf.

    Eliot’s lessons learned about connections, networks, giving, giving, giving … are well heard by me. We did a lot of things well, but did not do well in what is, I learned, the most demanding and resource intensive parts of publishing: what comes after you’ve published the book!
