We have a very wide range of content, but the brand-newest movies, what’s happening with those is a $30 pay-per-view option – not from Netflix but from DirecTV and others – of movies that are in the theater.
‘Discipleship’ as a term has lost its content, and this is one reason why it has been movedaside. I’ve tried to redeem the idea of discipleship, and I think it can be done; you have to get it out of the contemporarymode.
Work and play go hand in hand. A lot of people want to work, work, and work until 40, and then relax. Who says you’ll get to 40? Or 50? Who knows what’ll happen in the next five minutes? The only reality is the present. And if you can’t learn to live in the moment, you’ll never be content.
When people have options for what they want to see, it forces the quality of programming and content to be higher.
Living big and joyful and content is almost always the result of our findingsatisfaction in life’s ordinary day-to-day pleasures. And God must be fond of them, too, for He made so many of them for us to enjoy.
Initially, the television was seen as the devil incarnate by people that worked in the content industry. Now over time it turned out that that was one of the best things that ever could have happened to a content creator. I think the Internet is no different.
Now that we’ve transitioned to more Smart TVs, where people are broadcasting their cable box, I hope that Geek & Sundry is something that people will click on in the future, knowing that they’re going to get content that they love.
I’m not that ambitious chick. I’m not chasing a cover of a magazine or an award. I’ve just never been that girl. I’ve always been very content with whatever God blessed me with and he’s already blessed me with a lot.

Photos were seen as the most private type of content, and ‘Instagram‘ really flipped that on its head and said photos can be really public.
I have to understand how we are going to market the movie. We view marketing as an extension of content creation… Every time a consumer sees our movie, in whatever form, our obligation is to entertain the audience.
I should be able to pick which applications I use for managing my life, I should be able to pick which content I look at, and I should be able to pick which device I use, which company I use for supplying my internet, and I’d like those to be independent choices.
He has the most who is most content with the least.
You need interesting content that entertains or informs – preferably both. You want people to look forward to your posts and come back for more. People want to follow you. They want to hear your words and see your vision.
Content that’s generated out of America, whether it be film or music, has, in my opinion, much greater impact in sustaining our credibility and our place as a cultural capital. This is our great export.
I am so pathetic with machines in real life, it’s not a joke. I’d rather walk, or even run, than take the car out myself. I like to be driven around. Yes, I like fancy cars, and fancy bikes, too. It’s my dream to learn how to ride one myself, but for now, I am content being driven around.
What’s been important with Flickr is the community that’s been there from the beginning and the serious photographers that are there creating and sharing great content. If we lose that at some point then I think we have potential issues, but so far we’ve been able to do a really good job of maintaining that.
Structure is more important than content in the transmission of information.
I feel that I’ve done what I wanted to do, and that makes me feel fairly content.
Sex education is very relevant in today’s world where children have access to adult content across media. So it has become all the more important for parents to educate kids about sex and talk to them about it.
I definitely want make an impact in television. I want to make a continued and greater impact in feature films, and I want to be somebody who continues to be at the forefront of creating a wide variety of content that I could be proud of and that engages people on all levels.
But listen, I’m 29-years-old, I’m really lucky to be there and whatever happens I’ve been really blessed already. I have plenty of awards for this movie and if this was it for me I’d be really content.
The reason I’m drawn to it is – both the off roadracing and the motorcycles on the track – it takes a lot for me to quiet my brain and anything that requires 100% of my attention and focus I find very soothing and that is the closest I get to being content.
A child who does not think about what happens around him and is content with living without wondering whether he lives honestly is like a man who lives from a scoundrel‘s work and is on the road to being a scoundrel.
I really want to be the blackTinaFey, where I just am able to produce my own content and produce other content for other minority filmmakers and put their voices on screen and basically be able to have free range to produce.
When we started after Osama bin Laden, we really decided to go after the Taliban. And we seemed to be content to kick the Taliban out of Kandahar. And then we let Osama bin Laden escape from Tora Bora.
I worry that if I enjoy something – like the songs on ‘Some Nights’ are about wondering about who you are. I’m never quite sure and I’d hate to feel sort of content and get a good sense of who I am because if I know one thing, that’s not me. I don’t mind not necessarily being happy about it. And that’s fine.
I was an online service provider. It’s not my job to police what people are uploading. It’s the job of the content owners, and the law is very clear. If you create content, and you want to protect your copyrights, you have to do the work.
Both YouKu and Tudou do original content for a number of years, and we position it based on our difference in terms of age demographic. And so the content itself is really more suitable for the brand itself.
Likewise today, some Christians are content to merely exist until they die. They don’t want to risk anything, to believe God, to grow or mature. They refuse to believe his Word, and have become hardened in their unbelief. Now they’re living just to die.
For the longest time, the way that I had understood 4chan was this idea that the lack of an archive made the content really ephemeral, and it took me a while, but I finally realized that that’s just totallywrong.
Some estimate Hulu IPO could bring in $2 billion. What will the content providers get? Zero. What is Hulu without content? An empty jukebox.
Above all else, everyone at Roblox is committed to member safety. We take every precaution possible to make sure kids are protected from inappropriate and offensive individuals as well as from indecent and distasteful content.
I’m very content to have great management and a great label. But for me, success started when my managers came to me and told me, ‘Go ahead and quit your job.’ I told them, ‘As long as I don’t have to washdishesanymore, I’m good.’
Wayfarer is built on the idea that we can actually make a huge difference by creating entertainment and television and digital and branded content with a message. It doesn’t always have to be really, really inspiring or really earnest. We call it chocolate-covered broccoli.
The future of the television industry is changing at an unstoppable rate, and it is exciting to share my experience and thoughts on how this will change the value of content in the digital space.
It’s strange. No one ever really talked to me about my voice. People started writing about it, and I was like, ‘What?’ I’m really about my lyrics, but more people were talking about my voice. It’s cool, but at first I got upset because I wanted people to focus on the content.
The thing that excites me most technologically is the ability to use VR not just for games and displaying our content, but also for creating that content. We’re putting a lot of thought into what the Unreal Engine editor looks like as a VR application.
You can provide a short-format content, and it can grow, and it can spread virally across the entire Twitter system, and it can contain within it a link to something that’s much longer, that’s a long essay or that’s a video.
Any time you can give consumers more of what they want, it’s a good thing. Unbundling the album is a good thing. In the case of music – because it is content that you can slice into songs – doing that is of huge benefit to consumers.
The greatestwealth is to live content with little, for there is never want where the mind is satisfied.
I’m not a big believer in trying to jam stuff down somebody’s throat: ‘You’re going to do it my way.’ I’d rather show by example and live my life and have people say, ‘You know what, I want to live like Joel has. He’s got peace and joy, and he seems content.’
I didn’t want my parents to know about 4chan at first because of the adult content. By the time I was 18 and could talk about it, the site had become notorious for its exploits and the adult content on there.
The use of the term art medium is, to say the least, misleading, for it is the artist that creates a work of art not the medium. It is the artist in photography that gives form to content by a distillation of ideas, thought, experience, insight and understanding.
We’re at a point now where we’ve built AI tools to detect when terrorists are trying to spread content, and 99 percent of the terrorist content that we take down, our systems flag before any human sees them or flags them for us.
I love everything about books. I love the content, the way they look and even the lovely way they smell. I think a book collection says something about you as a person, and certainly my books are something I’d want to pass on for future generations.
For most of the ’90s and the first part of this decade, content providers who wanted to publish online only needed to worry about the graphical web browser.
While it is a great platform to showcase your talent, YouTubing is not as easy as it looks. To be successful, remember to ensure your content is what you can relate to, and not what is in trend. Wait for your audience to find you.
Critical and liberatingdialogue, which presupposes action, must be carried on with the oppressed at whatever the stage of their struggle for liberation. The content of that dialogue can and should vary in accordance with historical conditions and the level at which the oppressed perceive reality.
Superstitions and belief in magic are perennial in just the same way as religion, and something near to being universalamongmankind; and why this is so may be interesting, but in most cases the beliefs themselves are devoid of interesting content, at least to me.
Yahoo! is committed to building the richest set of premium and personalized content experiences for our users.
I think a lot of what the iPad app is going to be used for is just reading the best content on Quora. It really helps the whole system run because people who are writing answers can get this very wide distribution to a large audience of readers.
All sorts of factorscontribute to what Facebook or Twitter present in a feed, or what Google or Bing show us in search results. Our expectation is that those intermediaries will provide open conduits to others’ content and that the variables in their processes just help yield the information we find most relevant.
We just want to win. That’s the bottomline. I think a lot of times people may become content with one championship or a little bit of success, but we don’t really reflect on what we’ve done in the past. We focus on the present.
I keep myself content by doing lots of different stuff and make sure that my next role is completely different to the last. I just enjoy the versatility of it, the challenge of doing lots of different things. It keeps the job interesting.
When Google reached out to me in 2011, they wanted me to build out their female lifestyle vertical. When they were starting with that initiative, they were giving each production house a million dollars to produce content.
With scripts I’ve always looked at them and thought about kids, you know? Thought about the world and the impact… I won’t do nudity and I never felt comfortable with that whole idea or things with huge sexual content – not my thing.
You askyourself, ‘What do you want your legacy to be?’ I’m content at this point to say, ‘Those who follow me.’ Romeo Crennel, Bill Belichick, Sean Payton, to name a few. I think I’ve got a pretty good group, so far.
It was immediately clear to me that security was a cross-cutting issue, so rather than dividing the space up in parallel with each of the other areas, I wanted security cut across the areas in addition to having its own content.
Now an audience of more than 1 billion people is only a click away from every voice online, and remarkable stories and content can gain flash audiences as people share viasocial networks, blogs and e-mail. This radically equalizes the power relationship between, say, a blogger and a multibillion dollar corporation.
One day, I can come up with 50 content ideas, and I’m like, ‘Boom, I want to do this idea, this idea, this idea.’ I have a YouTube notebook, and I write them all down. Then other days, I’m like, ‘I have no clue what I want to do today.’ I rarely have days like that.
I’ve got to the point where I just get on with it and the content of what I put on the records is determined from what I learn from the audience, from what works live, from what I want to hear when I go to a club or what I’d like to play when I get home.
If you really care about Facebook likes, don’t just post your stuff to Twitter and then rely on it being republished automatically to Facebook. In my sample size of one, Facebook penalizes you significantly for that and shows that content to far fewer people.
Happiness consists not in having much, but in being content with little.
It is still not enough for language to have clarity and content… it must also have a goal and an imperative. Otherwise from language we descend to chatter, from chatter to babble and from babble to confusion.
For anyone who devours the web on a daily basis, the biggest problem is too much of a good thing. There’s so much extraordinary content – from articles to images, videos and Tweets – that it’s almost impossible to keep track of it.
Before, revolutions used to have ideological names. They could be communist, they could be liberal, they could be fascist or Islamic. Now, the revolutions are called under the medium which is most used. You have Facebook revolutions, Twitter revolutions. The content doesn’t matter anymore – the problem is the media.
I’ve made sure to always update my web properties constantly – Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, my Hypebeast blog… making sure I divided content across all of them to keep each outletfresh to keep people coming back.
Nature is inside art as its content, not outside as its model.
Ultimately, going into the consumer market, we really need outstanding content. That was the goal: if we can get the developerkit out at a low enough cost point, then hopefully a lot of developers would show up and start creating content.
You could have the biggest screen, you could have the clearest screen. But if there is not great content on this thing, that big-screen TV is not a huge value to you, even though it has the best picture on the planet.
We have people who pay to use our products and services, and they are heavily engaged in our content. If you erase the brand perceptions of AOL, and consider that people pay to use our properties, you would probably consider this one of the most valuable audiences on the Internet.
Because the competitivelandscape of the web is such that the site which looks and works best gets the most traffic, developers and designers put a premium on the presentation of that content and let structural markup take a back seat.
I think that in an Internet age, content is content. As long as you can stand up on the merits of what you’re doing right at that moment and aren’t just relying on your success in doing something else, it’s all good; people will respect you.
Now I’m having to live with sales of around 50,000 per album – but I’m pretty content with my place in the generalscheme of things, even if it’s meant I don’t drive a fancy car and can’t afford grandvacations.
Music is wonderful. Especially if there’s some kind of content to it.
I said yes to Smart because I know that connectivity plays a big role in linking K-Drama to Filipinos. I would not have felt this kind of reception from our friends in the Philippines if the fans did not have access to the content we offer.
Let me go over this again on the reclaiming the civil rightsmovement. People of faith that believe that you have an equal right to justice – that is the essence. And if it’s not the essence, then we’ve been sold a pack of lies. The essence is everyone deserves a shot – the content of character, not the color of skin.
Independent content these days can be more successful than previously because of the power of social media. However, there are still systems in place to make sure independent artists don’t get as far as signed ones.
I still do believe in the power of the Internet for good. I believe it’s a net positive. I believe that it does connect people. It does give people a chance to be more of themselves. It does allow for content to be created for audiences that were being completely ignored and neglected.
Alien Chutney is just what the name suggests it is. Its music that is so funny and quirky and weird that it feelsentirely alien to the listener; yet, the content and the subject matter is so Indian and relatable, it’s still chutney.
The content of Saul Leiter’s photographs arrives on a sort of delay: it takes a moment after the first glance to know what the picture is about. You don’t so much see the image as let it dissolve into your consciousness, like a tablet in a glass of water.
Young people have grown up watching so much content, and just to find something that they haven’t seen before: that’s the dream. When you stumble across a show, and you say ‘I haven’t seen this,’ that’s what we want.
Somebody captures an incredible video, shares it online, and inspires millions of other people to go and do the same with their GoPros, and then it happens again and again – and what you’ve got is this incredible snowball of stoked customers capturing and creating rad content with their GoPros.
Open source is a beautiful way of collaborating; but what’s happening on the free Internet is more akin to the ‘crowdsourcing’ of journalists and other content creators by advertisers who no longer have to pay them – only the search engines that parse their articles.
Evolution has been the key tenet of success over the past 13 years, and we have transformed from a single subscription e-commerce image business into a company with a diversified portfolio of content offerings, servicing the needs of businesses of all types and sizesglobally.
Our users have a relationship with our brand and are demandingmore and moreBumble content, and we’re committed to delivering that content with a team that’s as talented as they are passionate about our mission.
As social is where consumers’ eyeballs are, businesses must take ownership of their online company profiles. By providing their customers with a place to share content, social media managers can monitor and track content which directly relates to their brand.
The theologicalvirtue of hope is the patient and trustful willingness to live without closure, without resolution, and still be content and even happy because our Satisfaction is now at another level, and our Source is beyond ourselves.
The growing demand for content across our platform delivers bigger payouts to our contributor base and encourages them to upload fresh content to Shutterstock, further facilitating the network effect of our business.
I consider creativity to be a more non-rational, subconscious thing. You have a relationship to your creativity – you can feed it with content, with some rational prodding and sleep and things like that, but the mechanisms by which your creativity work are largelyunknown.
Many have puzzled themselves about the origin of evil. I am content to observe that there is evil, and that there is a way to escape from it, and with this I begin and end.
For this to make sense, of course, it would have to be a fair financial deal for us. But I think this could be the occasion for us to build a true partnership in content. And we’re especially interested because interactive services are a key field for us.
Think of any news site on the web that sells subscriptions; AOL has four times as many people as the largest subscription service. We have people who pay to use our products and services, and they are heavily engaged in our content.
I was perfectly content before I was born, and I think of death as the same state. What I am grateful for is the gift of intelligence, and for life, love, wonder, and laughter. You can’t say it wasn’t interesting. My lifetime’s memories are what I have brought home from the trip.
What defines someone as a ‘man’ should not be the clothes they wear or how deep their voice is. It should be the content of his character, his strength in the face of overwhelmingadversity, and his ability to still love and help others when the world has turned its back on him.
One can do a film and not work for six months, but on TV, you have to produce good content every week. It involves a lot of hard work, as one has to fight for ratings every week. But I have always got love from the audiences, be it during ‘The Great Laughter Challenge’ or ‘Comedy Circus.’
My partnership with YouTube is one that I really, really treasure and I want to carry through. I mean, I don’t just say it because I work with them; I genuinely am a fan of YouTube, so that’s where I’d want to see my content.
One of the amazing things about the Internet is that the content creators are the gatekeepers. We can think of an idea and execute it quickly, and we didn’t have to pitch the idea to a major network or convince a studio head to sign-off on the concept.
Netflix is distributed in 50 countries around the world. It’s an incredibly affordable, well-distributed product that gives anyone with access to the Internet and a screen access to content in a very affordable way.
If the game designer produces more content than he can consume per month, some fraction of the people will say more quests, more tests, more challenges, more whatever, and they will be compelled by it.
I can’t tell you what that little ingredient is which makes that first person want to go on and aggressively do more, and the other person be content to not do that. It’s a mystery, but it does happen.
Traveling around the country, meeting fans and hearing their stories in person and on my radio show has reenergized my commitment to creating honest and inspirational content that not only serves my own creative purposes but can help and touch others as well.
YouTube has so much great content. And it really has something for everybody. And people come up to me all the time and talk to me about how YouTube has changed their life, how they’ve been able to learn something they didn’t think they could learn.
Think of Slide as a giant media network for people to transmit information. The content that’s in there now has been provided by users – it’s whatever they want it to be.
I’d never painted anything before. I was quite content to take other people’s work since I didn’t care anyway about the subject matter. I approached subject matter as a scoundrel. I had nothing to say about it whatsoever. I only wanted to make these exciting paintings.
Four or five years ago I decided to stop cursing the darkness – I had been complaining about movies and their content for years – and instead to do something about it by getting into the film business.
Actors are there to represent the human condition back to itself. It’s never about the actor. It’s about the content. That’s what I strive for in my work.
The business model for content is to be paid for it. You can be paid for it either though advertising or subscriptions or some new invention, but right now what we’ve got is advertising revenue and subscription revenue as the only way to be paid for content.
People try to read a lot into what ‘digital’ means. It’s just another platform. There are very attractive things that happen if you invest in content – movies, TV production, acquiredseries, specialtygenres, digital distribution of our magazines, sports rights.
The first few films I made didn’t look good at all, and I wasn’t trying to make them look good. People dig ’em because they like the content.
The ‘serial kisser’ tag that has been thrust on to me is a lamestereotype. It irritates me. Yes, there is sexual content in my movies, and I have never been apologetic about doing bold scenes. But it’s not fair to tag me this way because that can be very stifling.
The blues is deceptively simple. Verse and chorus. Sometimes not even a chorus. Four bars that repeat, no Auto-Tune, electricityoptional. It is the most direct, bare-bones of content. There is no interference between the head and heart.
You need to get in studio; we’re excited about the Pay 1 opportunity with Disney because those movies are not just movies. They’re amazing family content that get flexed over and over again, forms great loyalty with our subscribers, and it’s a real trust brand for parents as well.
I went with the flow. I never knew this could be a career option. But as a 21-year-old desperate for people to watch his content and hear his music, I could go to any extent. Creating four videos a week, only a man sitting empty can do it.
I’ve programmed myself musically to come up with love-feeling tracks that are romantic, sexy, but classy, all in one. And that’s the challenge. Once I create that music, then the lyrical content starts to come – you know, the stories and things like that.
I learned that I never really know the true story of my guests‘ lives, that I have to content myself with knowing that when I’m interviewing somebody, I’m getting a combination of fact and truth and self-mythology and self-delusion and selective memory and faulty memory.
The appearance doesn’t matter as much as the content.
Television is much better crafted today then in the 70s. The content is less positive but I’m one of those that feel our entertainment reflectsour world, it’s not a driver – art imitates life.
I’m transitioning to television and film, but ultimately, I want to have a stronger presence on the web and be able to curate the content that I want to see. To bring attention to other filmmakers and writers.
I don’t want to participate in traditional Indian religious ceremonies – dance in a sun dance or pray in a sweatlodge or go on a vision quest with the help of a medicine man. The power of these ceremonies has an appeal, but I’m content with what little religion I already have.
I’d never really been content with just churning out these slimvolumes every three or four years. I’ve always tried to think of poetry as an active ingredient in the language rather than just something that appears between the covers of thin books.
The primary goal is to entertain people because… Fortunately, the kind of movies I have been doing have a certain message, they break taboos, and they are socially relevant. So it’s a great mix of content and entertainment.
As much as it might look like, to someone else, that I’m successful, I never feel like I’m anywhere. The further I go, I still feel equally further from my eventual goal. Because as I grow, I get more goals. I’m never content.
OTT platforms have opened up a whole new area to explore in terms of content, writing, acting, everything. But I’m not really very comfortable with the four-letter cuss words in all languages, which are now used liberally; I’m a bit old school.
I very much want to be in the business of creating content, of doing stories all over the world rather than figuring out what the business model is for ‘Newsweek’ on the iPad, although that’s very important work as well.
I’m in the strange position of the world drifting away from me, but you know what? I’m actually quite content with that. It doesn’t bother me in the slightest. I don’t feel like, ‘Oh God, I’m being leftbehind.’
Games have grown and developed from this limited in-the-box experience to something that’s everywhere now. Interactive content is all around us, networked, ready. This is something I’ve been hoping for throughout my career.
Although the events we appear to perceive in dreams are illusory, our feelings in response to dream content are real. Indeed, most of the events we experience in dreams are real; when we experience feelings, say, anxiety or ecstasy, in dreams, we really do feel anxious or ecstatic at the time.
When you limit the length of the video to something under two minutes, it gives everyday people an opportunity to make something entertaining. It’s harder to tell a story or create an entertaining piece of content that is based around the time slot model, television shows being 22 minutes long.
I remember a distinct moment when it was my junior year of college, and the content I was making was changing and not really myself, and I tried to switch back to just putting me out there. I’m happy that happened really early in my career, because that was before I started doing podcasts or writing.
We believe content relationships are compelling draws even where paid-TV-provided guides are prevalent, such as here in the UnitedStates.
We at The Web Standards Project turned everything on its head. We said browsers should support the same standards instead of competing to invent new tags and scripting languages. We said designers, developers, and content folks should create one site that was accessible to everyone.
If AOL had ever ordered me to remove a piece of content from the site for any reason, I would have immediately written about it and disclosed the situation to our readers. And if I had ever ordered a writer to remove content, I would have expected that writer to have done the same to me.
I am first a creator, but my ongoingobjective is to leverage my personal success to help mentor new and existing talent and further help them achieve their goals. Endemol Beyond shares this vision, and together, we will drive the future of original content for generations to come.
If an Internet company steals content, they shut it down. And let me tell you, AppleFrance, Yahoo France or Google France, none of them have gone out of business.
Part of the popularity with Louis Farrakhan has less to do with the content of his message and more to do with the form that he portrays himself – as being a free black person who speaks what is on his mind with boldness and fearlessness. Who is willing to pay the consequences.
What’s the right way to think about the distribution part of Steam? You need to worry about viruses and people trying to publish other people’s content, but the underlying thing is to eliminate that barrier between people who create stuff and people who want to have access to it.
In an age of social media and content being key, it’s important to change the mold where you have $100,000 to $150,000 for one video. I hired some guys that are young, just out of college, and we used some new, far-less-expensive cameras and technology to make videos.
There is a generation of skimmers. It’s not that they don’t want to read in-depth content, but they want to evaluate what the content is before they commit time. Especially on a mobile phone – you don’t have the phone, or cellulardata, or screen size to be reading full-length content.
Ideally, content should be shared, mixed, mashed, and reposted – it wants to flow through the Internet like water. This was the point of RSS, after all – a technology that has actually been declared dead more often than the lowly display banner.
People are not on a truth quest; they are on a happiness quest. They will continue to attend your church – even if they don’t share your beliefs – as long as they find the content engaging and helpful.
Online advertising may not be much more successful than an old double-barrel, but – like a good spray of buckshot – it makes up for its lack of accuracy with sheer volume. There are 10 unique ads listed with every Gmail message in your queue, each tied to the message content. And a paying sponsor.
Somewhere along the line, music became ‘content’… It’s my full intention to bring it back to music again! I believe in the power of song.
I think that the use of copyright is going to change dramatically. Part of it is economics. There is just going to be so much content out there – there’s a scarcity of attention. Information consumes attention, and there’s too much information.
If you could position the best platform media company around the world with the best content, we could get explosive growth.
For me, I like old-school rap music. There was a time when music was so, so rich overall, and the content of what people talked about was so deep on every level, song-for-song, pound-for-pound, and on radio, there was so much content. I gravitate more towards that type of music, to be honest.
Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns are the main event of WrestleMania 34 because neither one is content, and both are ambitious enough to push the limits of what is now considered their greatest moment, and that’s the point that neither one will ever accept. They will never accept the idea that they’ve peaked as individuals.
Individuals have the right to pick and choose which expressions to condemn, which to praise and which to say nothing about. Governments, however, must remain neutral as to the content of expression. And governments must protect the rights of all to express even the most despicable of views.
Design is the method of putting form and content together. Design, just as art, has multipledefinitions; there is no single definition. Design can be art. Design can be aesthetics. Design is so simple, that’s why it is so complicated.
I want to be able to still surprise myself, even shock myself, whether it be sexual content, whether it be about the theological content, whatever. I want to be able to knock myself sideways. Otherwise, what a waste of a life that would be.
The condition of all development is not to be content with the present, but to have the courage to ask how everything can be made better and the good fortune to find a right answer to this question in thought or in action.
I will say that equity overall is an important issue and one we are constantly looking at. In a perfect world, the entertainment and media industry and the content on our screens would reflect the true American scene.
There are always good parts. They may not pay what you want, and they may not have as many days’ work as you want, they may not have the billing that you want, they may not have a lot of things, but – the content of the role itself – I find there are many roles.
The model of getting the consumer to come to you is old, and the new model is how can you get to the consumer on their terms, in ways they want to engage in. How people are choosing to interface with content is very different. You’ve got to marry different platforms.
There are a lot of lousyconferences that pander to sponsors. They end up creating an opportunity for boring speakers who are paid shills for their companies. We still get a few of those, but we really try to police it. Think about who the audience is and what works for them, and deliver high-quality content.
