CCATP #586 – Bart Busschots on Free, Freemium, Free-for-now & Freepi

This week our guest is Bart Busschots but this is not Programming By Stealth. This week we’re talking about Bart’s recent post about the different types of free that are available for online services. We talk about his four categories: Free, Freemium, Free-for-now & Freepi (rhymes with creepy). It’s a thoughtful discussion about understanding what we’re getting for free and how we’re paying for it. We don’t ever suggest what you should do about any of this, rather Bart is trying to help us better understand what’s happening.

In the discussion I mention an article by Paris Martineau’s about FourSquare and tracking and how Apple Maps is included in the tracking. Here’s the link to the article: wired.com.

You can read and reference Bart’s article on the topic at Free, Freemium, Free-for-now & Freepi : Bart Busschots.
