Forget About Making Money

Aka, creating online content…

You may have heard of Electric City?

It’s the new animated web series created by Tom Hanks for Yahoo. You can read about it HERE.

Here’s the take-away quote though:

The one thing you know is there’s no money in it. It’s like self-publishing your poems. This is the equivalent of writing a bunch of short stories and just throwing them out there for people to read.”

If Academy Award-winning artists can’t create online content people are willing to pay for, as they would pay for TV series like LOST or American IDOL, what chance does Joe Blow have?

No wonder there’s so many cat videos on YouTube…
