Found this wonderful quote from Arianna Huffington on Seth Godin’s blog:
“Self expression is the new entertainment, We never used to question why people sit on the couch for seven hours a day watching bad TV. Nobody ever asked, ‘Why are they doing that for free?’ We need to celebrate [this desire to contribute for free] rather than question it.”
There you go. That’s it. That perfectly sums up why I can spend almost every waking moment doing what I’m doing right now. Even the most modest form of self expression is endlessly entertaining.
