Is the Internet dumbing us down?
Andrew Keen wants to start an argument. And his new book “The Cult of the Amateur: How Today’s Internet is Killing Our Culture” shows that he knows how to do it. A relentless attack on the beloved Web 2.0 touchstones of user generated content and “the wisdom of crowds,” Keen’s brief polemic is a strident one-sided, archly conservative view of how Internet culture is evolving — or, in his view, degenerating. Even as it hits stores it has already been smartly dissected and thoroughly condemned by blogosphere luminaries ranging from Dan Gillmor and Jeff Jarvis to Lawrence Lessig.

After such a drubbing, clearly no sensible Internet columnist should touch this book with a 10-foot pole. Yet it deserves a look for several reasons: Keen knows the technology and doesn’t make the purely technical blunders that usually discredit other doom-saying commentators. Keen is a fearless writer willing to take ...

Is there any innovation ever that hasn't killed our culture? Sounds like a way to make a quick buck - one of those buy-it-to-refute-it books with built-in guaranteed sales. The Internet has let people have unprecedented access to information - sermons, public domain texts, ability to publish their own works, etc. If they don't want to use it for that, it's not the Internet's fault There's not an erosion of original thinking, just a revelation that there never has been much. And any medium - even books - has produced a lot of rubbish and only a few classics. For every classic in the bookstore from before 1900, there are probably thousands of books that never made it.
