Right now is the most exciting times in history to be a content creator. – Shane Smith

I think everybody gets it wrong because they’re not willing to go out there and start from scratch and say, “We’re not going to do this how anyone else has ever done it.” – Shane Smith



David Carr

David Carr is a reporter and columnist for The New York Times. He is the author of Night of the Gun, a New York Times bestseller, and has written stories about WikiLeaks, Hurricane Katrina, Kate Winslet and Neil Young, among other people, places and things.

Some of the best journalists ask the dumbest questions. – David Carr

A lot of times, when you lift up the blankets on modern media brands, what you see is algorithms. I think media is about people making stuff with your own two dirty little hands. – David Carr
