Coincidentally, in the episode, Max and Altucher discussed breaking the mold on traditional gatekeeper industries such as publishing and media distribution and how the internet (including iTunes) is creating massive opportunities for self-publishers of information. The immediate success of The Altucher Show is very telling, said Stansberry Radio founder, Porter Stansberry, It shows that people know what they want, they know what they like, they no longer want to receive information that someone else has chosen for them like weve all been forced to do with traditional media models. Distribution opportunities like iTunes gives people a freedom to consume information in an entirely new and unique way. It allows the success or failure of content to be judged on its merits and the value it adds to someones life, said Stansberry. James message of personal freedom resonates strongly with his listeners, its a message we promote widely here at Stansberry as well.
