random quotes ... to amuse, inspire, enrage:
  If you are an artist or author who cares more than about the near-term value of your work, you should be worried and be careful about releasing your work only in copy protected form. Like the days when "art" was only accessible to the rich, two classes will probably develop: Copy protected and not copy protected, the "high art" and "folk art" of tomorrow.

daily kos blogs for the love of it

Monday, September 27th, 2004 6:46 pm

Kos blogs for the love of it — not for money.

A reporter asked, “So, uh, blogging … what’s your revenue stream?”

I responded, “I don’t blog because I have to, I blog because I want to. It’s the essence of writing — doing it for the joy of it.” Perhaps I imagined it all, but I sensed a grudging respect from them, a few nods of the head. Things are obviously different now, at least in the “revenue stream” department.

What’s that famous quote about nobody but a fool writing for anything but money?
