Elsewhere on the mountainside, Ezra was driving the horses homeward. The big Suffolk mares were anticipating the storm to come and were directed toward the homestead and pulled accordingly. With a hurried trot they turned the last corner and their reinleader stirred them to a lope. Fallen tree in tow, destined to burn. Horses, teamster, iron and fuel under darkening skies moved like an old funeral procession through a crowd clapping little shadows in and out of existence. Ezra is fauna.
"This is why subscriptions — “paying for the regular delivery of well-defined value” — are so important. I defined every part of that phrase:
- Paying: A subscription is an ongoing commitment to the production of content, not a one-off payment for one piece of content that catches the eye.
- Regular Delivery: A subscriber does not need to depend on the random discovery of content; said content can be delivered to the subscriber directly, whether that be email, a bookmark, or an app.
- Well-defined Value: A subscriber needs to know what they are paying for, and it needs to be worth it."
“For the world to be interesting, you have to be manipulating it all the time.”
