F*ck Stats, Make Art
Art Makes The Future
More interested in what to blog or twitter about rather than blogging about blogging and tweeting about Twitter.
Popular art is not the stuff that lasts
No matter the circumstances, etc are, it’s the words that live on.
Craft + intent / integrity = art
(not a perfect formula but something to work from)
- Upgrade your heroes
- (something about telling stories)
- Embrace translucency (because not everything is interesting)
- Improve cross-training
- Up your skills
- Don’t get precious
- Ignore the gatekeepers (you can publish yourself)
- Reap the rewards
There was a time when bloggers had the space to themselves and could be dismissive of traditional media, saying ‘they don’t get it’. Now all newspapers have blogs and there’s some good talent out there.
How can you rise above that? By being a better writer. Blogs, etc are the medium. That’s all. It’s still writing.
Build your castles in the air and put the foundations under them.
Whilst tidying, archiving notes and artifacts used in “Fck Stats, Make Art” talk presented at SXSWi 2009. Other round-up also available. These are the bits leftover yet worthy indeed. Mostly items remixed and created by others from the aforementioned spiel.
kinda stunned/flattered/amazed by the barrage of insightful messages from #fsma – found 3 haters and a busload of lovers – XO for the props
