Kindle Worlds and fans
Jeff John Roberts has a piece up at Gigaom about the article I presented at IPSC, with the news hook being Kindle Worlds versus traditional noncommercial fan fiction. The title calls Kindle Worlds a "bust" for fans; I don't think you have to see it that way, as long as you understand that it's not a replacement for unauthorized fandom. I'm really glad he picked up on the under-18 point, because I think it's a vital one that lawyers not versed in fan cultures might not think of at first.
