“Everybody is a creator. The power of the internet allows people to be a creator and to find an audience. For the ones who put the time in and the effort and are talented — they can build a life.”
 
That’s Jim Louderback, talking about how the internet has reshaped the creative online economy. Louderback is the CEO of VidCon, an online video conference company founded and headquartered in Missoula, Montana.

"The point I was at when I was writing a lot of these stories, let’s face it, I was in my mid to late twenties. I had a cheating heart, still do. That personal aspect of it, I think, most of the men I know, it’s something they’ve struggled with in their life, so to make it any other way would not be true to my reality. In a collection of stories I do think you have a duty to try to show your breadth as a writer and so as a criticism it’s pretty legit because if I am portraying a certain aspect of my characters in a repetitive manner, that’s something I definitely don’t want to do. So I would probably agree with your assessment of that, which is one of the things I did like about my decision to put a longer story at the end from a female perspective just to kind of show I’m more than maybe just a one-trick pony. Hopefully." -- Callan Wink
