The Future Has Come To You

Two of the most fascinating ideas about the modern world, as far as I'm concerned.

The first is how YouTube has come along and made it easy, relative to the kind of work required to build a business in the past, for anyone to just start talking about what they're passionate about and have it turn into something to earn a living from.

The second is about how we're entering a world where building a narrative and mythologizing your career on social media is something you just have to do if you want to get ahead. The option to not isn't really there any more unless you're just happy to be a local provider, but even then you're only there as long it takes for someone to come along who's telling a compelling story.
