This one is long overdue, but I was flipping through my notebook and found my notes back from one of my favorite days this year. Back in April, Austin Kleon made it to Brazos Bookstore in Houston on his “Show Your Work” book tour.
There were a ton of points I loved from his third book, but his talk reiterated something that got me thinking bigger than just self promotion, the basis of Show You Work. There is a chapter on this concept of a sharing spectrum that exists with one end consisting of hoarders and the other consisting of spam. Kleon spent a good amount of time on this and also drew and talked it out at the same time.
