The role of the author in the paperless age.

You cannot choose whether you'll be respected or despised, appreciated or hated.  You choose only to be known or unknown.  If you become known, you will inevitably be hated and despised, to some extent, all of the time.  But if you remain unknown, you'll never be respected.

Respect requires the danger —not the difficulty— of becoming known.  Becoming known may be easy, but the risk remains the same.
