So it's 7:50 PM. Work with me here, people...
Time for me to express my undying love for another man. Yep, I'm comfy enough in my own sexuality to do that. The object of my love is Chris Miller. Why? The reasons are legion. But the impetus for this post and global affirmation comes from his post on Unquiet Desperations today, where he said:
Most days, I’m fairly sure that many of my non-podcasting friends have no idea why I helped build Podiobooks.com. It’s just free amateur audiobooks, right? What’s the big deal?
The big deal is this: we’re living in a time where the more traditional modes of content distribution are being shaken up from the bottom floor. Independent artists are able, with a relatively low barrier to entry, to create and release their content to a waiting, global audience. No major publishing houses. No record companies. It’s between you and your audience. This is so powerful and so moving, it’s hard to describe.
And that is why I love the man. How can I not?
