The Blog of Gene Luen Yang - "Professor Waid, You Hippie Freak!"
"Professor Waid, You Hippie Freak!" 
Mark Waid, the writer behind Irredeemable and many other awesome comics, just released a better-articulated version of an off-the-cuff keynote he made at the Harvey Awards. He talks about comics, creative products in general, and our new file-sharing culture.

I'm a worrier. It's something of a hobby. I read the latest numbers from the comics direct market or from traditional book publishing, and then I sit in my room and worry, worry, worry. Waid makes a good argument as to why I shouldn't do that.

Looks like someone is making progress in the digital world:

yeah,
worrying is fun and easy (my wife is an Olympic-class worrier). We as an industry have to apply our creativity to the technology and things will work out. Obviously, having value to a fan base will translate to money changing hands. The technology may obliterate the infrastructure that we are used to (in some cases addicted to) in the mean time.
