Topic: "In the Future everyone will be famous for 15 seconds”

Andy Warhol is credited with saying everyone wants to be famous for 15 minutes. Ironically this happened when someone photo-bombed his photography shoot... Even before photo-bombing was a thing. 

The Internet and Social Media has cheapened the idea of celebrity and what it is to be famous. You can take this as a negative. Or you can accept that now and on in the future the bar has been raised. To be truly memorable, famous, worthy of mass market appreciation you need to be exceptional for the right reasons.

See Gus’s submission on 'New Media – It’s pointless putting lipstick on a pig’ for #cong15’ and 'The Revolution will not be televised… But you can download the Podcast’ for #cong14
