There was a history of alcoholism in my family. Born in 1965 and growing up in the seventies, it was a time where people didn’t talk about issues such as addiction. It was just common place just pretend this evil, drug addiction, wasn’t happening.

David Butler, Design to Grow: How Coca-Cola Learned to Combine Scale and Agility

“In 2013, for example, a seventeen-year-old Australian teenager living in England built a content-shortening app, called Summly, in his bedroom, which he promptly sold to Yahoo for a reported thirty million dollars. Now, imagine the next seventeen-year-old with a 3D printer, and you begin to sense the dimensions of the potential upheaval.”
David Butler, Design to Grow: How Coca-Cola Learned to Combine Scale and Agility

“58% of the US adult population never reads another book after high school. 42% of college students never read another book after college. 80% of US families did not buy or read a book last year. 70% of US adults have not been to a bookstore in the last five years. 57% of new books are not read to completion. Most readers do not get past page 18 in a book they have purchased.”
