The Traditional Publishing Bingo Card

John Scalzi put together a bingo card of hackneyed arguments for electronic publishing. I figure it's only right to return the favor...


Two squares are the same on both cards. I thought it was worth stressing that both sides use them.


Lest anybody think I'm descending into satire with the Shakespeare square, it was in the New York Times. I admit that it's otherwise so obviously contrary to fact that I'd feel silly including it at all.


(For those who don't know me, I am a professional copyeditor, and I love my career. Almost all my work comes from traditional publishers. This is why I care about well-meaning but misguided arguments that damage my own industry.)
