Kim Cameron does a book review of The Cult of the Amateur. The title of his post is “Emperor of the Amateurs” I assume this is as in the the Emperor has no clothes. I saw this guy peddling his book on the Colbert Report the other night. Both Judith and I looked at each other and said, “can this guy be real?” I am glad to see others that have actually done the work of ferreting out the bastard.
“How today’s Internet is killing our culture” my ass.
If you are looking for a real hoot, and have nothing enjoyable or worthwhile to do, consider spending an hour (no more) with Andrew Keen’s The Cult of the Amateur. Whatever you do, don’t buy it – you’re sure to find discarded copies lying around. Mine, for example.
