    Paradoxically, the world getting smaller due to the Internet means that individuals can be bigger.

    It used to be that if a thousand people around the world read your column, you’d never know it, because the world is a big place and those thousand people are all over it. But with the internet the entire world is in the palm of your hand in all truth, and a thousand people who read your column are right there. And a thousand people is a lot of people to have right there with you, certainly enough to convince yourself that you’ve really got something that people want. And if you’re used to the idea that for every subscriber there’s ten listeners, well.Report
