“SQUELCHED ENTHUSIASMS”

  • Soi-disant curatrix Maria Popova, co-creatrix of the widely lampooned Curator’s Code (sic):

    [W]e don’t yet have a system that codifies the attribution of discovery in curation as a currency of the information economy, a system that treats discovery as the creative labo[u]r that it is. This is what the Curator’s Code is – a suggested system for hono[u]ring the creative and intellectual labo[u]r of information discovery by… celebrating authors and creators and… respecting those who discover and amplify their work.

    At South by Southwest, 2012.03.10 (podcast, ≈14:00):

    The act of bringing to people’s attention that which is meaningful and interesting and relevant and enriching is a form of labour, a form of creative intellectual service that someone is performing for you, and yet we don’t treat it that way when we attribute discovery as a form of authorship.

  • Short-fingered vulgarian Donald Trump, The Art of the Deal, p. 1:

    I don’t do it for the money. I’ve got enough, much more than I’ll ever need. I do it to do it. Deals are my art form. Other people paint beautifully on canvas or write wonderful poetry. I like making deals, preferably big deals. That’s how I get my kicks.
