missing the point,
This review is from: The Cult of the Amateur: How blogs, MySpace, YouTube and the rest of today's user-generated media are killing our culture and economy (Paperback)
I was highly disappointed with this book. I found that it failed to achieve a coherent argument and blatantly ignored opposing views. I would suggest to someone interested in this area to read Matt Mason's book the Pirate's Dilemma which is a much more intriguing read. Or even Lawrence Lessig's, free culture. Not exactly on the same wavelength , but poses some interesting questions that this book neglected, furthermore both of these books are available as free downloads from their author's websites. hmm perhaps the web isn't as evil as Mr. Keen would lead us to believe.
