Joi Ito's Web: Will the tail wag?
Excellent discussion on the implication of Chris Anderson's article, The Long Tail
: "Will there always be producers and consumers of music and other content, or does the amateur revolution really take off and completely blur the consumer and the producer of content?" See also Charles Leadbeater's Amateur Revolution
, where "From astronomy to computing, networks of amateurs are displacing the pros and spawning some of the greatest innovations.. These far-flung developments have all been driven by Pro-Ams -- committed, networked amateurs working to professional standards." (Ref my earlier posts on "open production"
). 8:54:56 AM
