The utter futility of geekness

Dave Winer: When bloggers get together, the topic of every session drifts into "How do we make money doing this" no matter what the original topic was. [cut] No matter how you try, the discussion never actually uncovers any ways to make money.

Randy: Lot's of people are making money blogging. Like me. For years, I worked for software companies and the executive constantly asked that question "How do we make money doing this?" I kept answering, "You sell products and advertising." They would always respond, "It's not that easy." Well, they were right. It's not that easy. You actually have to try, which they weren't prepared to do. After ten years of excuses, I decided more than a year ago that I was gonna do it on my own because these business f-ks can't answer the simple question, "How do we make money doing this?" A year later, I've got multiple recurring revenue streams so large that I don't have to work for the rest of my life. Want to learn how to make money blogging? I'm telling you how on the Besting Adwords blog and you are just not listening. Dave and the business types are wrong, there's lots of money to be had.
