Summary

Best-selling author, Jon Ronson introduces us to Fabian Thylmann, the Brussels teenager who came up with an idea: make porn free and easy to stream online. This one decision, years ago, started a cascade of effects and now millions of people behave a little differently when no one is watching.

Classic Jon Ronson in a new way.

I really enjoyed this. I should however stipulate at this point that I'm a massive Jon Ronson fan and have enjoyed all of his books to date.

This differs from previous Audible offerings in that it' comprises a narrative from Jon interspersed with interviews with people rather than accounts of interviews. Jon's manner is very light but his questions are intelligent and interesting. You don't feel that anyone is being set up to make a fool of themselves and as a result he teases out genuine and interesting responses to questions.

In terms of subject matter - yes, it's about porn, but really it's about how a significant change to an industry affects ordinary (well...) people.

It's free (at the time of writing) so if you like Jon Ronson or Louis Theroux, you honestly can't lose with this. I look forward to paying actual money for future instalments!

Classic Jon Ronson territory.

FakeAgent and FakeTaxi?

For the record, Fabian has never bought FakeAgent or FakeTaxi simply because I have never sold my sites.. I have absolutely no idea why this is stated in this interview. My site FakeTaxi had not even launched by the time Fabian sold Manwin. Comical really...
