i feel sorry for people who use IE. i feel sorry for people who dont blog – as in really blog. i feel sorry for people who dont take pictures of their lives and share them. i feel sorry for people who dont understand and embrace web 2.0. i feel sorry for assholes, particularly those who dont listen to death metal. i feel sorry for anyone who hasnt been kissed by a girl in her teens this century.
but most of all i feel sorry for people who see the future and dont see themselves in it in a big way.
this thing that im in, this sxsw thing, is not just about the future its about the present. there were two big huge keynotes over the last two days. the first was on sunday with the twentysomething yr old founder of facebook who was offered a half billion for his site and said no and was offered over a billion for his shit and said ha and today his site is allegedly worth 15 billion dollars and he still isnt selling out.
gen y taking a chapter outta the book of gen x which is fuck you and your fucking money. shove it up your ass and lemme help you.
the other big huge keynote was with frank warren who spoke with yours truly for a few minutes after he spoke to thousands. ps i love my job. whats so important about frank is he created a space for people to share their deepest darkest secrets and according to this man we all have at least one secret that will make us cry or make the world cry or make people say holy crap man. whats important about his blog and his site and his books are they are the epitome of User Generated Content. they are the example of Anonymous and the power of the human spirit when the ego gets set aside and the Story gets raised where it should be: up high for all the kids to see.
i feel sorry for people who dont understand that this world is changing so fast that even the world doesnt know how to react or what to call it or what to do. the only thing you can’t do is think you can stop the progress. the signal cannot be stopped. the tick tock of the clock cant be untocked. nor should it be. there certainly was an asswipe somewhere back in the day who said fuckit you people can try to cross the mississip im gonna stay right here in virginia
like a bitch.
dont stay in virginia, virginia. come out to cali. keep xploring. keep climbing the sierras. keep trekking across the great divide. keep meeting new girls and keep kissing them,
when its an open bar at a canadian hosted party order doubles and tip triple
when its an open internet with very few rules floor that fuckr and close your eyes and use the force luke and head for the light.
i feel bad for every single person who still thinks this is the 20th century.
i feel so bad for anyone who can read these words and doesnt appreciate the system of zeros and ones and men and women who brought it to them.
many of whom are young.
most of whom only want good in this world.
most of whom when given light and water will grow like noones business.
and will only grow faster when fertilized with bullshit so keep crapping on the youth of america and see what your devious cockblocking does for you.
what you resist persists.
what you avoid
