Content with Content

Songwriter and youtube song-a-day artist Jonathan Mann has a new video online advocating for abolishing the term “Content Creator” for people who release things on the web. His position is that the term diminishes things designed to be distributed on the online, making them disposable. As individuals who have been described as “content creators” themselves, Anthony and Jeff discuss what this semantic change might mean, and why the desire to make quality creative endeavors on the web can be challenging.
