Drove up the hill to Prescott yesterday for a speech at the Phippen Museum on Olive Oatman. Big, ragged clouds all the way. Shot this right out the front window:
"We love print. I’m a huge believer in it. We’ve lived with devices long enough to understand their enormous advantages and disadvantages. If you’ve spent 90 minutes scrolling on your phone, you don’t necessarily feel more informed. You may feel listless and restless. We’re moving into a post-digital euphoria. We’ve seen e-books have plateaued, and real books have had an enormous rebirth. A magazine is restorative. You need to be able to unplug. You absorb information differently when you read it on the page."
—Joanna Coles, chief content officer at Hearst Magazines
"I invented you."
—Don Dedera, in his invite to me for his birthday party
