It is what will offend the fewest number of users; that is the way to manage a successful network over a scarce medium. The future of non-scarce media isn't to shepherd scarce media into righteous behaviors, but to fill demand directly and provide a place for people to discuss the real facts of the Iraq war for hours without any distracting mentions of the Runaway Bride, and vice versa. As people get more of their information from the non-scarce media, the more our common narrative will wither and fragment into dozens of ideological narratives. The wags of tomorrow will whine for the Good Old Days when the entire nation experienced the shared unity of watching Walter Cronkite as one happy family. But I digress. Blogs are largely pajama-clad commentary on the work... [View]

No, it didn't, because your idea of Original and Brilliant includes that madman. But you're not talking about personal opinions so much as mighty millenia-long cultural standards. Who sets those? Do they come from rulers with political and religious authority? Do they come from the ignorant masses? Do they come from stylish trendsetters and avant-garde artists? The hipsters scour the Long Tails, searching for brilliant originality and turning what they find into next season's Must Haves. But only some of it; not everything they discover turns to gold, revealing another level of filtering. Will the new technology replace this with anything different, or will it simply take the single, hegemonic, scale-free popularity curve and replace it with a zillion subcultural copies of it? Personally, I think the latter. How many blogs don't link to Instapundit, how many podcasters don't namecheck Adam Curry? The future is looking more and more like usenet.

I like being corrected. But vlogging is still fetal. I don't think it's impacted society yet, in fact I'm not quite sure that regular blogging has yet either. I'm still waiting to see some true industry disruption. If blogs do shake the foundations of Big Media (or if file-sharing does take down Big Music) it's due to the dissemination of trillions of dollars worth of personal computers and operating systems. As Deirdr´┐Ż notes, once these thousands of dollars are spent by each individual, the rest is "free". But at the risk of being even further misunderstood, let me try to restate the... [View]
