I’m listening to Andrew Keen’s Google talk. He’s a controversial guy, and he is certainly poking people for a response, but I have to say he’s main points are EXACTLY what I’ve come to learn.
Things that he said that are correct:
1. Sites like Reddit and digg-type sites are too eash to game. CORRECT.
2. The line between advertising and content is being blurred by web 2.0 and that is a bad thing. CORRECT.
3. Payment systems for artists are important and if they don’t have them they will find a way to get them. CORRECT.
4. People are increasingly insulting each other. CORRECT.
Do I love Wikipedia, digg, reddit,
