Jimmy Iovine Explained That Going To Burning Man Doesn't Make You Hunter Thompson
[HBO's Richard Plepler, Apple's Jimmy Iovine] In between beating the point that artists are people too ("The enemy of progressive art is the public markets."), and 'splaining to everyone what we all knew - that the tech world don't know nothin' 'bout culture and the culture world don't know nothin' 'bout tech - Iovine dropped this quote during lunch that made me snort my iced tea out of my mouth: "Just because you go to Burning Man doesn't make you Hunter Thompson." Half the room erupted in cheers - I'm guessing it was the "cultured" half? The other quote of Iovine's that is too good not to share: "If the shit gets bigger than the cat; get rid of the cat."
