Fifteen Minutes of Fame

This is a side note to my last blog entry.

When Andy Warhol said "In the future, everyone will be famous for 15 minutes," he was talking specifically that everyone would sit in front of his camera for fifteen minutes as was the ritual for entering his factory.   

Why did this statement resound so strongly with people?

I think though that what really sparked with people in that idea is that there are moments in everyone's lives where they feel famous.  It might be their wedding, it might be their big touch down in high school that won the championship, it might be when they saved the company by an accounting procedure - whatever it is, I think people feel that they do have their moment of fame and that those are that person's 15 minutes of fame.
