The Tao of Publishing

So, the thing about having a strategy that requires ignorance by the intended targets is sort of mutually exclusive with posting said strategy on the internet, which as we all know, allows for the kind of surveillance that would give John Poindexter ecstatic epileptic fits.

Tao Lin’s plan to submit everything to everyone has hit a snag. Or maybe that was the plan all along. Hard to tell. The internet makes deadpan pretty damn elusive. As Oliver North and cohorts would say, it provides plausible deniability. It’s certainly possible for fame in the blogosphere to bring an audience that exceeds print readership, if readership is all one desires.
