Horace Dediu talks to Prof. William J Torgerson, a teacher at the Institute For Writing Studies at St. John’s University in New York about the writing process and how it survives and/or thrives as a commercial enterprise. They talk about writing for movies and compare the collaborative process of “content creation” vs. the “single voice” of an author. If you make software you really should pay attention to how art is made. And vice versa.
