the thing is someone is going to do it. a group of ambitious, talented, forward thinking photographers, writers, musicians, filmmakers and creative marketing people are going to crack the cooperation puzzle and build a new dynamic media company that’s solely owned by the artists. they’ll figure out how to cut out the publishers, editors and studios. and they’ll have a business model that can at least keep the endeavor afloat until they gain some sort of critical mass.
all the tools are available to do this right now. it’ll just take the right combination of people who are dedicated to being organized and willing to give up a bit of individual gain for the collective idea…” —Flickr: Discussing Why was this picture accepted? in Your photo isn’t really that great
1.There are three states of being. Not knowing, action and completion.
2.Accept that everything is a draft. It helps to get it done.
3.There is no editing stage.
4.Pretending you know what you’re doing is almost the same as knowing what you are doing, so just accept that you know what you’re doing even if you don’t and do it.
5.Banish procrastination. If you wait more than a week to get an idea done, abandon it.
6.The point of being done is not to finish but to get other things done.
7.Once you’re done you can throw it away.
8.Laugh at perfection. It’s boring and keeps you from being done.
9.People without dirty hands are wrong. Doing something makes you right.
10.Failure counts as done. So do mistakes.
11.Destruction is a variant of done.
12.If you have an idea and publish it on the internet, that counts as a ghost of done.
13.Done is the engine of more.” —Flickr: Discussing All night bullshit session in Your photo isn’t really that great
