"The Question of Attention" — my thoughts, as delivered at TEDxEast on June 3, 2014. It’s a humbling experience to be asked "if you could tell the world one thing, what would it be?"…followed in short order by "please include some of that stuff you say about Millennials." Here’s what I came up with. Hope you enjoy. Or don’t. I’d like to hear about it either way.

The official log line:

How do we get attention on the things that matter to us most? Just ask the Millennials. Drawing on her experiences in media, marketing, computer programming and politics, Anne Hubert says they are the masters of attention, channeling it and focusing us all to create what’s next.

I strongly believe that we are not put on this Earth just to accumulate victories and trophies and avoid failures; but rather to be whittled and sandpapered down until what’s left is who we truly are.

Someone was here before me and I’m here because I’ve been paid for. I have something to do and I will do that because I’m paying for someone else who has yet to come.

This is not a knock on Adam’s talent, which is utterly boundless and he’s exactly the actor who should be doing all this. It’s a knock on a world where women are typecast and men can play villains, Lotharios and nerds in one calendar year and something has to change and I’m trying.
