Like that video -- kinda' a modern day Wizard Of Oz lead in to fantastic graphics!I have similar feelings about Kanye -- but here is a preso that I really like:
Are you a creative?   I am definitely not!  In one way creativity is like porn -- I can't define it, but I know it when I see it (or hear it in this case).Entertainment, including the music industry, is a $ multi-bilion marketplace -- and I suspect it will continue to grow.Not being creative, I am interested in the thought, decision-making, and decision-influencing processes of those who are creative -- especially (but not limited to) those creatives who bring about...

Yeah, like the first time you saw the Apple ][ or the Mac -- you just knew you were seeing the future, and had to be a part of it.Change, in the world around us, makes us old farts (DORFs) forever young ... exciting new toys and adventurous new paths to explore!
