Don’t make stuff because you want to make money — it will never make you enough money. And don’t make stuff because you want to get famous — because you will never feel famous enough. Make gifts for people — and work hard on making those gifts in the hope that those people will notice and like the gifts.

If you are interested in the future of digital journalism, this is something you MUST READ.  Twice, Jonah Peretti has helped revolutionize the way information is created, curated, and shared—with HuffPo, then Buzzfeed.  This is a LONG interview with the founder/editor, and it is enlightening.

I needed to accept what was put before me—be it a watery grave in Ireland’s only fjord, or a return to the city and its grayer intensities, or a wordless exile in some steaming Cambodian swamp hole, or poems or no poems, or children or not, lovers or not, illness or otherwise, success or its absence. I would accept all that was put in my way, from here on through until I breathed my last.
