Overview

I’ve spent the last 6 years writing a song and posting it on YouTube every single day. That’s 2300+ days straight. I’ve had lots of viral successes, like the time Steve Jobs used one of my videos to open a keynote. I’ve had lots low moments, too. Through it all, I’ve just kept writing and sharing, writing and sharing.

Viral success is great – but it’s the small one-to-one connections that are the most meaningful. These connections can’t be quantified because they are all unique. It’s the often overlooked story of being a creator on the internet.

Objective

To illuminate the humanity of the internet and to inspire you to create more and share more of what you make.

Target Audience

If you make things for/on the internet, this talk is for you.

Five things audience members will learn

  1. How to make something everyday for over 2000 days.
  2. The true nature of the internet.
  3. Why sharing your work, all of it, is a good thing.
  4. How to deal with trolls and haters.
  5. What Steve Jobs did when he heard my song about the iPhone 4.
