At the Webbies, there were a number of people that said, "Congrats on your award!….yadda, yadda….What do you sell on your site?"
When I tried to explain that it was not a commerce site at all, they looked confused.
I got scared. It worried me that there may be hoards of people getting online that don't see the web as a potential artistic tool.
If you learned about the web from TV ads you think it was a big business park. Buy stock. Find a job. Auction stuff.
Don't get me wrong, I like that I can buy my books online…I love it! But, to me, the web is so much more than that.
I mean, sure, you can use a pen to write a check, but if you never use it to doodle or draw…well, that's just a shame.
