Creative Capitalism: Bill Gates vs. Peter Quinn
Waaaaaay back in 2003, local musician and artist Peter Quinn and his friend Todd Meyers founded the Baltimore label Creative Capitalism.
They were the ones who released the innovative Noble Lake album I noted a few months back.
As far as Quinn knows, he coined the term "creative capitalism."
But in the past few years, billionaire computer wizard Bill Gates (pictured) has started using "creative capitalism" in his many philanthropic endeavors ...
Now, Gates is credited as the author of the phrase.
Quinn is less than impressed.
"I was like, 'Wow, this is incredible,'" Quinn said. "What weird histrionics. It doesn't matter if it's true or not -- the more people that believe it creates it."
It's proof that in the Internet age, it doesn't matter who comes first. It's who has the most clout that matters.
