Free at Last

Carlos explores the proposition that everything will soon be for free.


  1. In your video you're standing in front of a shelf filled with books, perhaps to convey to your viewers that you read a lot. Let me ask you a question, have you actually read Chris Anderson's book? What? Don't want to pay $26.99 for the hardcover version? Missed the opportunity to download the free digital text version when it was available? Fear not, you can still download the free audiobook version from iTunes.

    I should also point out that by posting your little diatribe on YouTube, where I was able to view it without having to pay anything, you've pretty much proved Mr. Anderson's thesis. Now how's that for irony?

  2. Thank you for calling out the 800 lb freebie in the room. Geezus! I work in content production and this "virus" has become inoperable. I have a hard time wrapping my mind around concept of free in a business environment on muliple layers. Long-time professionals now just giving it away. How does an economy sustain when this circle completes itself? Least any of the micro-economies. You know it's bad when even the porn industry is loosing money. Keep the carnival alive Carlos. If we follow you, can we call ourselves Carlos Carnies?

  3. Chris, how 'bout you send me the hardcover as a gift, the holiday season is upon us! How much is my effort worth to obtain the download?

  4. Don't have time to read the book, Free? Here's a synopsis of it in less than 4 minutes: I will use my tax dollars at my public library to read the book in the next few months. BTW: Carlos, I posted your video as a reply with the one mentioned over. Let's have our viewers get both points of view. I liked hearing/watching yours so keep up the good work.
