From the blog of Seth Godin:
So there’s more, but is there better?
I think we gave a Disney movie, circa 1954, the benefit of the doubt. It was the movie in the theatre. It was the only one to choose from. It was a big deal. It didn’t matter if it was the best movie Walt ever made, because it was the only one right now.
The bar’s a lot higher, because access to tools is a lot easier.
Now anyone can produce a video or record a song. The trick to standing out is to have a point and to do it well.
