Professionals vs Amateurs
Srinivas Rao

I can’t help but think of Billy Childish while reading this; he would advocate the quite the opposite.

Rather than a dichotomy defined by the efficiency at which you work or your ability to avoid distractions, I think Childish would say the essence of being an amateur is doing something purely for the love of it, independent of the quantity and quality of what you create. As opposed to a professional, who is tied to producing work primarily to earn a living, restricting ones ability to really push artistic boundaries.

To me this seems more crucial than difference presented here?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
