Re: Chronicle on effectiveness of free content

The article notes that Richard Miller "says he has evidence that
those video hits are not pumping up his book sales."

The evidence Miller provides is not particularly convincing.

An interesting and unexpected article in the Chronicle about a
physics professor who was touted by Chris Anderson in Anderson's
new book "Free" as an example of how free content helps to sell
books. The professor, Richard Muller of Berkeley, says it ain't
so. Not clear to me after reading this that either Muller or
Anderson have this exactly right. Here is the link:
