Interesting Posts From Other Websites

Back in November, I posted an article by Forbes detailing Amazon's campaign to take on the mainstream publishing houses by encouraging writers to self publish via the Kindle Direct Publishing program (you can read the article here). This week, The New York Times carried a piece about how Amazon is now undermining those same writers it used to weaken the hold of the mainstream publishing houses on the industry by creating Kindle Unlimited, which gives readers access to Amazon's books on a lending basis, negatively impacting its writers' royalties. Anyone who writes and publishes needs to read Amazon Offers All-You-Can-Eat Books; Authors Turn Up Noses.

I'm an unabashed fan of Resident Evil, especially the first two movies (though admittedly I love all the movies) as well as the first two Capcom video games. In Defense of Resident Evil (2002) sums up nicely many of the reasons I'm such a fan of the franchise.
