Stuff White People Like
Stuff White People Like creator Christian Lander was at Google Authors, and it's a refreshing story. His site mocks the status climbing world of the stereotypical white person, ever eager to appear more progressive, more environmentally and socially conscious, and most of all more independent than the stupid corporate drones and rednecks they contrast themselves with.
Landon describes creating the website for his friends, never thinking it would be a big hit. I think creative people are best when they just try to please themselves, and if others find their work funny or interesting, great. They are doing what they know, it flows effortlessly because they are doing it primarily for enjoyment, and they have something unique to say.
