Welcome

ME-B&WMy name is Scott Laningham, and I’m a storyteller.  My tools of choice are words, music, and video – mediums we all have more immediate and portable access to now than ever before. Within our smartphones alone, we today hold media creation and broadcast power that equals and even exceeds what used to be locked up in radio and television stations. That just blows my mind, daily.

So, I write about that, and life in this digital era. I write about technology, much of it as it pertains to IBM, where I work as a video producer and strategist. But to be perfectly clear, I do not speak on behalf of IBM. These are my thoughts.

In addition to the tech thing, I write about music, from the perspective of my over 35 years as a working musician. I also love humor. I write about what ever moves me, so there is a lot of variety here. Maybe too much. But just steer toward what you like and we’ll all be happy. It’s all in the menu above.  I hope you enjoy scottlaningham.com.

Quote of the month

There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open.
