Moderately Easy

things you’ll need:

  • Computer

Instructions

  • 3)  Don’t do any research on the topic.
  • 4) Write some vague instructions stating only the obvious. Make sure you don’t include enough information to actually complete the task correctly. You get extra points if the instructions seem to be for something other than the title of the article, or the steps are obviously out of order.

  • How to Figure Out the Demand Media Business Model

    25 Feb

    Garbage in, garbage out.

    The article purports to teach you how to understand the business model of Demand Media (the owner of eHow), and yet the author does not appear to grasp the model at all.

    The fact that an eHow writer does not understand the Demand Media model is actually a very good summary of the model itself, which is this: hire a shit-load of people who have basic literary skills and pay them the bare minimum to crank out as many articles as possible. Research, quality and knowledge not required.

    How would you describe the DMS business model?
