“86% of millennials say, ‘Fans have at least some ownership of the things they’re fans of.’ 50% of millennialls say, ‘Someone should make a movie about my life.’ 33% of millennials say, ‘There isn’t really such a thing as the truth.’”
A lot has changed in the last 30 days.

“When these features are being designed, are they being designed to most help people live their life? Or are they being designed because they’re best at hooking people into using the product?”
“A story is kind of a black box and you’re going to put the reader in there. She’s going to spend some time with this thing you’ve made and when she comes out, what’s going to have happened to her in there is something kind of astonishing. It feels like the curtain’s been pulled back and she’s gotten a glimpse into a deeper truth. As a story writer, that’s not as easy as it sounds.”
“Be skeptical of advice offered from people that don’t have the life you want. Unless somebody has produced the results that you’re seeking, take their advice with a grain of salt.”
“Given that older Americans who don’t use social media are polarizing faster than younger Americans who do, it’s clear that this is about more than whom you follow on Twitter.”
“Grit isn’t fixed like your height. Rather it’s something you cultivate, more like learning a new language.”
“Being afraid will limit you. And most importantly, it will limit your creativity. If you become afraid of what you are trying to do.”
“At its core, the story of Place is an eternal story, about the three forces that humanity needs to make art, creation, and technology possible.”
