Everyone always asks me why on Earth I live in Montana. Well, a lot of reasons. But an important one is that I have to stay a little bit disconnected from this culture, or I stop being a fan and I start getting competitive. I always want to be a fan...I want to be driven primarily by how much I like the stuff that's getting created, and not by comparing myself to it.
I think a little of both is certainly healthy, but I never want the competitive bit to outweigh the happiness and enthusiasm that comes with being a part of such a cool creative community. A community that is doing brand new stuff and changing media and changing culture and having a really great time, too.
THANKS TO ALL OF THE GREAT PEOPLE IN THIS COMMUNITY. Even as we struggle with how it's grown (and growing), even as some creators have disappointed me and this community, I have been consistently surprised by how many of the people making stuff on the internet are just enthusiastic, driven, good people. And I think audiences have a lot to do with that...so thanks to the communities of all of these people for very intentionally choosing to support and watch creators who don't suck.
