Cory Doctorow: Amazon has revolutionized my life

Canadian science fiction author, blogger and copyright activist Cory Doctorow’s latest nonfiction column has been published over at Publishers Weekly. Titled “Doctorow’s First Law,” here's one of the more interesting passages:

“Amazon is a retailer that has literally revolutionized my life, my go-to supplier for everything from toilet brushes to used DVDs for my toddler. And in addition to selling my own works, I also sell upwards of 25,000 books a year through Amazon affiliate links in my online book reviews. This makes me a one-man, good-sized independent bookstore, with Amazon doing my fulfillment, payment processing, stocking, etc.”

It’s nice to see a prominent SF writer praise Amazon instead of denigrate it.
