Welcome to the Real World

 

It was so great seeing Tizzy yesterday… my head’s still spinning over how awesome her new video is.

And today I saw the above video from CNN Money.

What a pair of bookends!

The guy who walks away from a job at Merrill Lynch to sell virtual real estate, and the woman who keeps coming back to a world that tries to walk away from her.

The capitalist and the hacktivist.

The profit motive and the aesthetic impulse.

Real money and real cultural values.

Real people building a bridge to the future even as they walk across it.

Welcome to the new world.

Welcome to the craggy, nutrient-rich shores of the third millennium.

Welcome to the real world.
