“As If” – Kevin Kelly

Metaphor slowly passes whatever invisible barrier lies between the real and fake, and it becomes “is” — it becomes “real.”

Our modern digital world is a metaphoric world. We make things real by first constructing them as a metaphor, an “as if” type. Then we slowly deepen the metaphor, adding more layers of meaning and realism, until metaphor slowly passes whatever invisible barrier lies between the real and fake, and it becomes “is” — it becomes “real.”

— Kevin Kelly, The Technium

Real Advice Hurts from Merlin Mann

You get good at something by doing it repeatedly.

We can’t get good at something solely by reading about it. And we’ll never make giant leaps in any endeavor by treating it like a snack food that we munch on whenever we’re getting bored. You get good at something by doing it repeatedly. And by listening to specific criticism from people who are already good at what you do.
