Actually it is your choice- you claim to understand this particular
economic system (of publishing) very well- yet you for some reason do
not take advantage of your knowledge and make yourself a boatload of
bucks. Or perhaps you have not been able to come up with a way to
use that information, in which case you will have to find some way
to jump out of the system. Selling your stuff over the net is a good
experiment. At any rate, I do think your fate is squarely in your hands.
