Size Matters

Dear Lameass Tweeps (self included),

 

You narcissistic bores. 140 characters or less (you’d think the limit would force creativity) and still the mundane prevails:

 

@lefsetz: Passing through Mohave

@oprah: Headed to Maya’s for dinner

@outlandosmusic: Star Trek here we come!

 

#YAWN.

 

But still, we keep at it… a challenge, a game of sorts: can one be consistently compelling in so few words?

 

Just in case any of us presumed self-indulgent thought pollution was limited to the young & hip… Nielsen’s recent poll has 49% of Twits 35+ equally bedazzled by the truncated screen and it’s willy-nilly, up-to-the-minute broadcast ennui. Fascinating. Wisdom still doesn’t necessarily come with age nor, apparently, with short, concise language (a.k.a. less vs. more).

A Triple-A radio programming veteran, Kate has served as Music Director of the Loft at XM, Midday Host at WYEP, Evening Host at both WNCS and WUIN, as well as Content Supervisor for Pump Audio. Currently, she’s the CEO of Outlandos Music, a new-music discovery service for grown-ups. Kate has been nationally recognized for her ardent presentation of music and her ability to champion talented, compelling artists.
