Tony Osborn, a supervisor at MSL, says that it’s the authenticity that really makes the difference in the age of social media. “It takes something simple, like a purchase you make as a customer, into a meaningful experience,” he says.
–from Fortune Magazine September 2013

“The Moth gave [Interface] a common vernacular of how powerful a story could be when told the right way,” says Gerson. “Ever since then, we’ve been talking about telling the story, telling the story, telling the story.”
