I don’t always agree with VC Fred Wilson, although I find him worth reading. He’s got this right:
It’s one thing to build your business on the infrastructure of someone else. Publishers do that all the time (hopefully adding value). It’s quite another to be their poodle. Dependent. This is not just an ‘attitude’ thing. It’s a question of control — and, below that, to do with brute economic power.
