Brad Frost recently spoke at Creative Mornings in Pittsburgh.
What follows is an exploration into the sheer noise being produced in today’s world. We’re taking more photos, writing more books and producing more content in general than ever before. In a time when there is so much, how do you stand out? How do you avoid adding to the noise?
Enter solid expectations and “death to bullshit”. A must-watch ->

Where did Brad Frost get his stats from? Could you give me the sources?
I second kontextb2b – a list of sources would be great.
Hey! Feel free to ping @brad_frost on Twitter direct. He’ll be the best person to answer where he got his sources from. 🙂
Hiya! Brad (the guy in the video) here. I posted the slides here http://www.slideshare.net/bradfrostweb/death-to-bullshit which contain the sources for all those stats.
Thanks for sharing!
Thank you, Brad! 🙂
Loved this, took lots away but the part that really sticks with me is, “You should feel extremely privileged that people took time out of their day to visit your web site.” I think that is so important because I think many of us assume people should take time out of their precious day. Where is the humility?
We are so self-important and empty all at once. In a way, I think that’s why we have so much bullshit-slash-noise. We are like spoilt children demanding for the ice cream and the toy on the shelf, as if shrieking is evidence of our right.
Genuine creation is so hard. As a creator, I sometimes feel like I can pour in my heart and soul into the creating of something to represent my vision and get nowhere. Yet sometimes everything just comes together and that’s when I know the effort really pays off.
Bullshit is subjective, of course. What one person sees as craft, another sees as crap. However, I choose to believe that the true measure of craft is the tribe that we create and attract through our creating. Craft attracts creators and a creative culture that nourishes. Crap attracts emptiness.
Thanks Brad for that insightful talk and thanks to Kate for publishing it here.
