We’ve applied now for becoming an Amazon.com Associate site, which is one type of income stream for Kaplak in our current phase. I wanted to test one of the Amazon widgets here. This one creates contextual links, i.e. figures out what the content around it is about, and lists products which should be somewhat in accordance with what we’re writing about.
I’m quoting a piece by Yochai Benkler in order to create a little more context for the widget :
As economic policy, allowing yesterday’s winners to dictate the terms of tomorrow’s economic competition would be disastrous. As social policy, missing an opportunity to enrich democracy, freedom, and justice in our society while maintaining or even enhancing our productivity would be unforgivable. (The Wealth of Networks, p. 28)
Erm… this didn’t seem to work very well. This is what happens when you do experiments in complete public. Let’s try this instead :
That was better, but the “hovering” doesn’t seem to work… Will do more experiments in the following time. Please stay tuned, and support us by buying these great books :-)
