FREE: The Future of Intense Irony

@audible_com please can you do more to convince your audio book publishers that you are an internet company, and by definition operating in a global marketplace.

Does Chris Anderson (@chr1sa) know that FREE is not FREE (contrary to his intent I believe), but it is completely UNAVAILABLE in the audio form for large parts of the world. What is this crap!

As @jason says "We LOVE audible", but the love get a little tougher when we get dissed and discriminated by @audible_com based on where we live.

Free offers to people following @audible_com? Great PR you would think...

.. but that turns into real bummer for a lot of us - actively poisonous PR. Couldn't you simply check to make sure that any freebie you want to offer is one that you can do globally?

Bah humbug!
