L.A. Times interview with Dawid Piaskowski (June 11, 2013)

Moving HQ to the U.S. -- I sort of see the impetus for this, but in light of recent events, is this really such a good idea; particularly the notion of moving to the West Coast?


I'm also wondering about the impact of inviting publishers to this site.  If it can be used in order to source books directly through the publisher, rather than a sales platform (such as Amazon), that might have its advantages (particularly for small press publishers and their readers).  The again Ammy is a publisher, too, though -- in the ebook market, via Kindle -- and that is one of the biggest factors in the whole brouhaha we've been seeing at GR.  How is a replication of that to be prevented once they've got their foot in the door as a publisher?
