Seth Godin: Bandwidth Sync Correlation

Seth Godin has a cool graph comparing forms of communication based on how timing (i.e. the difference between creation and "consumption") and bandwidth (how much information they convey). It would be interesting to add another axis to the graph, namely which forms of communications are free and which are paid for ... the paying line seems to be moving from the lower left corner to the upper left (high bandwidth, real-time). I think that's what Chris Anderson (Free) means when he says in the future people won't make money selling books, but rather by having the authors give specially commissioned talks.
