Print and online publications sometimes have a motto, like the New York Times' "All the news that's fit to print", which is published every day on the top-left corner of the front page. Other publications choose a quote that encapsulates their vision or their guiding principles. Usually, these quotes are from wise men and women like Aristotle, Einstein, maybe Eleanor Roosevelt or Tom Friedman (and many others of course). So I was a bit surprised to learn that a new German publication, Upload, a magazine covering digital publishing, is using a quote from my speech at the Reboot conference in Copenhagen last year as their motto: "Es gibt keine neuen und alten Medien -- nur Werkzeuge, um Geschichten besser zu erzählen":
Which in English would be something like: "Forget the new-vs-old-media argument -- they are all tools for telling a better story". I got a mail today from Jan Tissler, the founder of Upload, saying that this has helped frame his work. Glad to learn that, and I certainly wish Upload alot of success.
