For Scott Timberg, shrinkage is probably a term that’s too gentle. The title of his new book makes clear how he feels about it: Culture Crash: The Killing of the Creative Class. When you look back–and you don’t have to look too far–you find communities of support and different kinds of patronage that have enabled people to pursue their creative callings, whether it was designing a building, writing a book, making music, or working in a record store and educating customers about new bands. So much of this is going away, and Scott offers an invigorating look in his new book at some reasons why.
Call of the Siren is very proud to have him here for an interview this coming week. Stay tuned, my friends, this one is worth it.
