On the Road

“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.”
― Jack Kerouac, On the Road

Press Pause Play

Presspauseplay (2011) is a great documentary about how disruptive the internet is for the creative industry.

A variety of artists (Moby, Lykke Li,...), internet personalities (Seth Godin, Sean Parker,...) and critics (Andrew Keen) shed a light on how the internet changed the way business is done....and will be done.

I had seen a part of it on tv (V!rus on Canvas to be specific ) but only discovered recently that the documentary is freely available on presspauseplay.com both in a normal version as an interactive version.

It's interesting, well made, funny sometimes and for some probably eye-opening.
