What words are worth

To clients, back when I was a freelance copywriter : $1-2 per.

To the commercial printers who ran the the jobs above : the paper they’re printed on; the price of ink.

To Twitter, currently : $7.7 Billion.

To pictures (ratio) : 1 to 1,000.

To academic publications : reputation x audience.

To my offspring, this morning : zip + squat.

To students, from teachers : more than it sometimes initially appears.

To me, based on hours spent, inspirational and training costs (academic & cultural fees, book & magazine purchases, etc.), and chocolate/coffee expenses divided by number of original ideas someone’s read and connected with : every blessed penny.



  1. As a programmer, I can say a picture is worth more than a thousand words. You can get a lot of a lot of text for the memory of a single picture.

    zip + squat is pretty much the case with my kids too.
