QOTD: Quincy Smith

From Quincy Smith the president of CBS Interactive as quoted in the Wall Street Journal:
We can't expect consumers to come to us. It's arrogant for any media company to assume that.

I've been sitting on this quote for a few weeks, but it seemed like a good day to roll-it-out. I've been reading some blog posts about yesterday's UNIVERSITY – Knowledge Beyond Authority conference at the Berkman Center. It got me to thinking that the quote had applicability far beyond just media outlets. Could we not substitute "learners" for "consumers" and "educational institution" for "media company" and still have a pretty good quote?
