Where Have All The Indies Gone?

Humble Bundle (previously known as the Humble INDIE Bundle) has announced its first partnership with a major game publisher with the Humble THQ Bundle. Is this another charitable move to help out a publisher in financial crisis, or has Humble Bundle sold out? What happens when our grassroots indie movements get absorbed into the corporate model?

Curious why this is failing. Does nobody care about the state of indie gaming? Here's a snippet of what I've said elsewhere: The creative industry might survive by monopolizing, but it thrives by diversifying. I honestly think they (THQ) should just die. That is the nature of businesses, or at least it should be. They flare up, they turn a profit for a while, and then they die out. Otherwise, you have 3 companies owning everything and forcing abhorrent business practices on their subsidiaries in order to grow their shares. Since THQ is a publicly-traded company, they have a bigger "responsibility" to their shareholders than they do to their employees, the true artists (not to mention their customers). Indie game developers don't have the same issue.
