i want people to stop using the word "content" to mean literally every kind of work or any kind of creative endeavour that was persisted in any kind of medium

And, btw, i realize that we used to have a different word for the same concept: whether it was a song, a newspaper article, a theater play, it was "a piece"

so why does "content" feel so much worse?

I heard a phrase today that I hope to never hear uttered without introspection ever again, "a content creator I enjoyed as a child"


@yaaps @meena it's only 00:52 so if i'm lucky this may be the worst set of words i'll have read all day
