I'm tired of my artist friends
I’m tired of my artist friends fetishizing pre-web media, feeling that to matter they have to print a book, get published at a magazine, or get funded to film a cinema movie or start a “real” startup. Fuck that.
You know how those over 40 make fluffy pronouncements about new digital literacies?
Well, the new literacy is * PUBLISHING*: reaching hundreds, thousands, millions through web media, for next to nothing, and learning to hold their attention. It’s only tangentially a technical challenge.
End rant. I love you artist friends.
