Warning! Bias alert! Yes, this post is biased. I don’t care for Demand Studios. I don’t make a secret of that. And as a blogger it’s not my job to always serve as reporter, staying completely objective. It’s to share my thoughts, my experiences, and my viewpoints as ones to consider whether they match your own or differ.
Today I want to take a look at some criticisms of Demand Studios / Demand Media other than the low rate argument. And I’m going to give you facts — lots of them — so you can make your own decisions about some of these issues. After all, if your opinions aren’t based on facts they’re not opinions at all — they’re delusions.
So today I want to follow up on Carson Brackney’s recent post on Demand Studios where he mentioned that he’s giving them a go for himself so he can form firsthand opinions (which is something I respect by the way). I did have a wee issue with one thing though — his mention of the DS debate, and the focus on criticism revolving around rates they pay writers.
