Andy Warhol said, “In the future everybody will be world famous for fifteen minutes.” You can’t choose the 15 minutes but why would you be world famous?

What he said fits into our current world exactly. We can inform people of our opinions or suggestions through YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, or personal blogs. But, in this post, I would like to discuss how he foresees the future.

Just before the advent of the internet, we were happy if some of our acquaintances or friends appeared on TV. But nowadays it is not like that - we are not happy about such an occurance in the same way. We just upload our stuff onto the web. Once one of our uploaded things attracts a great deal of attention among people, you can be famous through whatever you choose to display; just like Warhol said in the past. Maybe he was only one of the famous painters. But he was interested in movies, business, and relationships among people. I think the variety in his point of views made him say something profound like that.

Like someone else once said, “Stretch your ideas and thoughts”, if we put our efforts into researching that which we are interested in, I think we can predict the future and prepare something for it..
