Quote of Note | Michael Eisner

“The media have as much opportunity today as they have ever had. The creation of content has never been more important. It’s wide open for all sorts of new creative ventures. The dissemination of content to every nook and cranny of the world has never been easier. It has gone from paintings on cavemen’s walls to the ability to digitally beam movies, television, news, information, and music into every cave in the world. The need for entertaining, informative, provocative, and important ideas has never been close to what it is today. I don’t think it’s all about user generation of material or democracy in media. It’s still about human beings coming together and deciding what is and isn’t interesting.” —New-media entrepreneur Michael Eisner, former CEO of Disney
