Let me start of by saying that I really loved the conference that Scott Johnson put on today. Very informative. The first part with The Doctor is In, was great. Excellent panel, great questions, lots of information that I'm actually going to go back and watch the recording, when they get it posted.
Second panel was about blogging. While this could have been a great panel, the first person they had speak was from the academic world and her study of blogging was really informative, except that it sounded like I was in an auditorium at a college getting big worded on a simple topic. She took so long talking about her items that it hardly allowed time for the other two panelists to interject or speak on the topic at all. The information was still good, just not as well done as the first panel.
Third panel was about the psychology side. Very informative and interesting. Jen Nash and George Simmons were brilliant together. I got really excited to go out and grab her book, then it hit me...I went to Amazon. The book in Kindle form is 27.99$. What? for a 282 page eBook? Kindle editions aren't really supposed to be over 15$, unless they are a true medical or technology books, then they can be higher, because they have a multitude of pages in them. So my thoughts get the best of me. Really? just because it has the word Diabetes on it, you're going to charge extra for it?? It might not even be her doing, because it's released through a very well known publisher. But $28 for a Kindle eBook?!?! I won't be purchasing it right away. Why can't folks focus on helping others out. The cost of Diabetes is so high in the first place. Why make the book high priced. Make it 12.99$, I'd buy it then.
So I walked away from the conference with some great information and a little bad taste in my mouth about Jen Nash's book.
How did everyone else, who attended, like it??
