I was recently interviewed by Kevin Joy, a reporter at the Columbus Dispatch, about my thoughts on The Million Dollar homepage and several students who are trying to "multiply" the concept. Anyone who knows me will tell you that I'm one of the biggest dreamers out there. That said, as an artist, I must stake a stand for the concept of originality.
Basically, the students featured in the Dispatch article are trying to cash in on someone else's innovative idea. Hey, that's America. But, as I explain to Mr. Joy, these students will have to develop a marketing twist just as innovative as the original idea in hopes of getting anywhere with this get-rich-quick attempt.
