Not everyone has the same investment in and passion for discovery
You know you’re a Savant when… you know you could write better questions for the local bar’s pop quiz You know you’re an Enthusiast when… you have a couple of friends who always put you on to the latest cool bands you think it would be unhealthy to be more interested in music than you already are You know you’re a Casual when… you think the frock is almost as important as the song You know you’re an Indifferent when… you hear lots of unfamiliar songs at weddings you seem to listen more to talk radio these days
If we can make the new methods work, discovery can work for us. And that makes our culture more vibrant.
Jennings’ Law: People make most of their discoveries elsewhere.
Strategies that tap into social dynamics improve your chances of being discovered.
