The Folly Of Innovation

Sad to see Andrew Keen who once wrote a book about the sheer awfulness of the internet (The Cult Of The Amateur) now praising the “technological revolution” and talking about how those who have no access to the web will be left behind in the rat race (Is Innovation Fair).

Maybe somebosy paid off Keen. Msybe Little Nicky Machiavelli should write a book about how the internet makes us unable to distinguish between worthwhile content and dross so the dross merchants will pay me to get off their case.

The internet, like a child with ADHD thrives on novelty and noise. Therefore I wonder if it is the 25% in Britain (75% worldwide) who are not wired that will be left behind or wil they continue to develop, profiting from life experience and book learning, while the online community stagnate into a subspecies of twitterers and delusion dwellers?

Just sayin’
