money money money

I’ve been to Crosstalent 8 yesterday. Usually at the previous sessions we talk about media/creativity/advertising stuff, but on this one Vicens Castellano tried to convince the eager audience that they should focus on making money by converting all passive aspects of their life in actives. I told them and I still think is wrong.

Yes we have to have money to live. The system works like this.
Yes even I use and ask for money for my services.

But there are people out there who know to make money better than me.
And those people cannot do what I do.

I am not for extreme especialization, but we divided the work into social casts. See Ernest Gellner social anthropology. Be better at what you like and leave the money making business to those who know to make money.

This is the short version of my view.
