hence the saying "never a prophet"... I get that. Started a social network in Philadelphia more than 10 years ago, ran 100 *free* events all over the city and nobody knows about it... or me. Had to work in NYC area to get somewhere.

Thank you for stopping by, John. We won't have promotional kinds of link bait here. Appreciate the comment nonetheless.

In 1955, a Swiss-born photographer by the name of Robert Frank took his Guggenheim grant and headed off on a two-year photo journey across the U.S. His finished work, The Americans, was so divergent in both style and subject matter that it was published in France before being accepted by a U.S. publisher.

As a result of the work, Frank became the visual Jack Kerouac and sparked a generation of street photographers.

Would he have received either funding or wisdom from the crowd? Doubtful.

Sites like Emphas.is are important now because we're still in a media transition period and need something to keep the fires burning. But, you ask the right question - is it sustainable?
