Bird Mimicry v.s. free encyclopaedias


I heard about this CD on the radio this morning. It’s a fascinating example of how innovative content can be created and packaged.

It’s a collection of birds imitating a range of sounds including a modem and a carpenter working. To me, it shows that – on one hand content declines in value with encyclopaedias being given free with breakfast cereals – on the other hand – innovative and unique content like the bird mimicry will always have a premium
