I completely agree that radical generosity, giving stuff away fast and smart, is a competitive advantage in the world today. My friend Cory Doctorow, a science fiction writer has been giving away his stories via podcast for about a year. Then they came out with a book of short stories, based on those free stories. The result: it sold out of its first printing in a few days and a second edition came out the first of this month. His brand value increased, his sales increased and his net profit increased the more he gave away.
