Unexpectedly Intriguing!

The second part of this week's Carnival of the Capitalists is now up, and that brings us to our views about how this week's edition was handled by host Russell Buckley of The Mobile Technology weblog (link available from here).

Russell Buckley's experiment, which if you read the comments from the first edition, has clearly failed. As of this writing, I have not been able to find any note of the second edition from the Carnival's major booster, Instapundit, whose weekly support is essential in driving readership to the Carnival. There's an old business lesson to be learned here - when your product marketing (and yes, the Carnival of the Capitalists is a product) is dependent upon a single or highly influential distributor (such as Instapundit), you need to get their buy-in to any product changes since their support is essential to making your product successful in the marketplace. Hopefully, Russell Buckley is learning this lesson this week.
