David Collet's curator insight, November 12, 2014 10:16 PM

Once again, about creating new career paths and opportunities.

 

This is something that I have noticed several years ago. Most of the new stuff is coming by way of the new media. Newspapers and Magazines are still around but not nearly as relevant.

 

The main message I get from this article is that while the medium may have changed, the message remains the same. Convince your audience of your sincerity in a niche, and you will draw the audience. Draw the audience and you will (eventually) get financial reward.

 

And as an aside, I believe it to be much more difficult to convince a diverse audience of your sincerity if it is not genuine. Because this becomes a universe of niche's, most people devoted to a particular niche can recognize a fake pretty quickly.

Harland works for BBC Radio 1 as its “head of visualization." If that sounds like something of an oxymoron for a radio station, well, that’s sort of the point' ...

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, January 28, 2014 5:18 PM

Our brain is the original flight simulator.  Nothing is as powerful as the human brains' ability to visualize and imagine and fill in the storyworld of what we hear.  Years of storytellers have taken us on all kinds of journeys, from Lake Wobegon to War of the Worlds.  Very smart to hear that BBC Radio thinks of listeners as 'viewers.'
