Writing and The Passion Economy
Li Jin writes fascinating analyses of the passion economy. The passion economy is the growing trend of individuals directly monetizing their creative output using digital tools. The passion economy is making it easier for people to find audiences for and making livings from their unique creations.
I find writing an especially interesting area of the passion economy. It doesn’t require special equipment or a crew, as video might. It can really just be one person thinking and sharing. The connection between the creator’s mind and the audience is exceptionally direct.
