30 second sound bite is generous, more like 5-7 these days.

I read this somewhere around 2005, and something that stuck with me is that he said to pay attention to the advertisements in the things you read. Those advertising in said things are very likely to interest you, algorithms in early stages so to speak. He was essentially saying that hey, those selling something have figured you out, and by reading "xyz" you must be interested in "abc." Heavy paraphrasing on my part... his work has stayed with me a long time.
