Is Charging for Information Right or Wrong? - Chris Pirillo on the "Google+ Expert Debate"

Is Charging for Information Right or Wrong? - Chris Pirillo on the "Google+ Expert Debate" | The Google+ Project | Scoop.it
Of course Chris Brogan is going to charge! If you give stuff away for free, people don’t put ANY value on it. Information is power, and the power doesn’t come cheap.

If you don’t think your time is worth anything, that’s fine – it’s your time. But you can’t sit there and claim that someone else’s time is worth nothing – especially when that someone has gone to great lengths to share so much intelligence *without* charging for it!

Srsly? My Google+ Seminar Was a Joke, Apparently This One’s For Reals

Srsly? My Google+ Seminar Was a Joke, Apparently This One’s For Reals | The Google+ Project | Scoop.it
Why do I think it’s absurd to offer a paid course for Google+ at this point? Here are just a few reasons why:

- Google+ is not open to the public — you still need an invite to get in.
- Business pages for Google+ haven’t launched yet and we don’t even know how long before a regular, non-suggested business will be able to register
- So far the users are basically social media experts and agency people, normals aren’t even interested yet
- Once the normals arrive (if they do, I still question this), Google+ will be a very different place rendering Chris’ course even that much more off-base
- Everyone has said that major updates are coming to Google+
- Somehow Chris Brogan has logged over 250 hours on Google+ since it’s launch less than 22 days ago as of the time of his seminar ad posting

Beware the Google+ Experts! | Gini Dietrich, Spin Sucks

Beware the Google+ Experts! | Gini Dietrich, Spin Sucks | The Google+ Project | Scoop.it
There is something going on in the social media world that is really bothering me.
The “experts” are taking advantage of people who feel like they’re going to be left behind if they don’t figure out Google+. Now.
And, because we all are limited in our time, people are shelling out money to have someone teach them how to use the tool.

Stop it.

Right now.
