We don’t want to spam our users. We’re only at the tip of the iceberg of what we can do for authors in terms of helping them connect to fans. I was once having drinks with the author Tim Ferris, and we looked at the site together and saw that [tens of thousands of members] had read his books. And he was like, “Great! How can I email them all?” And I was like, “No, we don’t have that.”
JUST BECAUSE I’VE READ A TIM FERRIS BOOK DOESN’T MEAN I WANT TIM FERRIS EMAILING ME. EVERYBODY SEEMS TO UNDERSTAND THIS EXCEPT TIM FERRIS.
