I agree. The business model itself can be non-monetary, but still everything costs money, and thus it is very useful (not essential, but useful) to earn that money yourself.

Yes, Jason worked with Jeff. But for details you should ask Jason. :)

I can't tell yet, because the book is being written at this time. :)

No, I don't feel I lost something. My retina scan is only one the card I have. Not in the computer of Privium. (And even then, I don't feel I lose freedom by having people take copies of a scan.)

Which sound? The music or the voice over? or both? And what is inconsistent? Pitch, volume, speed?

Thanks, you're raising good points. Actually, all my slides are available for free. That is not my main concern. You are right that free slides and free videos are good marketing, and they can help to sell the "really valuable thing" which is my personal availability (as a speaker). On the other hand, when one of many presentations is not available for free on the web (on video, for example), customers allow me to charge more, because the talk is "exclusive". Now that I'm changing my personal business model, I need to find a good balance between making almost everything available for free (90%) and keeping just a few things exclusive (10%).

No, I said my core business is selling books AND speaking. My talks are not simply a "PR campaign for my books". Almost no author is able to live from book royalties alone. Same with me. The suggestion that my talks are just a book promo tour is actually quite insulting.

The association principle at work. Nice! Great to have you on board André!

I think you have a good point there.

Gerard, thanks for your input. Much appreciated. But I have to disappoint you. The dictionaries and translators disagree on the translations. For example, Google Translate says that "aansprakelijk" = "liable" and "verantwoordelijk" = "accountable". I checked other dictionaries too. Usually they allow multiple translations as equally valid.

Yes, just type "Top 100 Agile Books (Edition 2013)" in Google. :-)

Thanks! I use my hands, a scanner, and Paint.NET (free).

That will depend on the organizers. :-)

Thanks! Well, I like the moving-hand animations, but it seems they are already becoming somewhat cliché. I tried to be a little bit different. :)

Ah, yes! I remember. Thanks.

Glad you like it! I actually use the checklist myself too. :)

Yes, today for the first time ever, an organizer cancelled my talk because of this. And I don't care. :)

Thanks Henrik! For now you can simply leave a hyperlink to this post on any person's blog when you think they can do better. ;-)

No problem. I'm _glad_ I don't have to decide on ordering myself! That would be difficult with my own books among them. :)
