In the future everyone will be world famous for 15 minutes – Andy Warhol


Recently been contemplating the mark we leave on the world. Some people leave their legacy through their children, others create art. Andy Warhol was able to leave his mark in the art world, but also culturally. His 15 minutes quote has remained. Interesting to think that something you say could outlast you for decades and become a part of the social lexicon.

This quote was particularly prescient. The obvious place where this gained traction was with Reality TV. However, social media, blogs, social apps, and the internet in general have broaden the scope of this particular thought.

We now see people becoming famous for viral videos, or having a camera focus on them during a football game. It’s a new world. Welcome to it.
