We Live in an ART’s Driven Economy

ok Not totally but….
“the arts were found to add four times as much to the US economy than agriculture.”
Photography contributes $10.2 billion to the US economy.

So the next time someone (family member, lawyer, doctor, farmer, investment banker etc…) plays down the value of ART or the fact that artists work very hard and are business people just like other professions tell them to F-off! The numbers are in and that argument is full of shit.

Social Media Reform

This is a very important video to watch… I have it starting at 21:21 which is where it gets into the negative effects of social media on critical thought and discourse.

The ending is great and after watching this and reading about this issue for several months now and having many, many discussions with my brilliant wife Eve I decided today to remove all social media apps from my iPhone… only apps essential for business are left- no more distractions. I also turned off almost all notifications and have to admit today has been a lot quieter and nicer. I still have access on my laptop to FB and Twitter but I am going to limit that as much as possible… too much noise and not enough time to think.

Viva la Revolution- Steve

Net Neutrality

This is very important… yes the message is delivered with humor- but if Net Neutrality ends so will the internet as we know it…

Call your representative and get involved… the internet is perhaps the greatest gift the American people have given to the world so let’s not fuck it up now…
