Dirk Deppey catches all the Platinum news this morning.  Deppey describes a now-deleted post on the Investors Hub website (here’s the Platinum discussion forum there if you’re interested) by Platinum COO Brian Altounian that was a pretty inflamatory comment on Platinum’s "relationship" with creator D.J. Coffman.  Coffman responded here and later here.

Deppey also links to a Publisher’s Weekly story that focuses in on how book publishers are still happy with the new WOWIO site whereas comic publisher are not.  I think that actually speaks volumes to where the two types of publishers are in terms of adapting to the web and incorporating new media into their publishing strategies.

UPDATE: FLEEN gets an anonymous tip that WOWIO still doesn’t know when it will get around to writing checks to publishers to pay them what it owes them.
