Session: The Second Renaissance

Freitag, 24. September 2021
Sprache: Englisch

The Second Renaissance is here, and creators are about to be valued and courted to a degree never before experienced in history. This transformation will happen faster than we imagine - it’s already started.

The major distribution platforms are realizing that ad revenue isn't enough - ad dollars won't be the primary financial mechanism to power the next generation of creative people around the globe.  Platforms are starting to build new tools to help creative people make money. Not only is this awesome because of the direct impact it will have on creators' pocket books, but it’s awesome because of the way it's going to change our culture. It's the beginning of a cyclical pattern that will push the world into a new phase of professional creativity.

This speech is how Jack Conte sees all of that unfolding over the next few decades.
