Obviously the aim is not to starve which is why creative people need to accept the need to develop their promotional skills. The term 'starving artist' should not be celebrated but the term 'artist' or 'creative' definitely should. The most satisfying acts life are those of creation - it's a shame promoting these acts can be so difficult - but that's the game.
The Rise of the Creative Class at IBM’s #SmarterCommerce
Technology has enabled bloggers to publish their work directly to consumer, and even charge for their work. However, the creative class still has two problems left:
- How to effectively distribute content, especially when competing with the noise-makers like Mashable, Buzzfeed, HuffPost, and the like.
- And how to make a living doing what they love.
It’s time for the creative class to cross the last mile. It’s time for the term “starving artist” to disappear from the English lexicon.
This was taped yesterday in Nashville, TN at IBM’s Smarter Commerce conference, in front of a live studio audience.
