watched the documentary Press Pause Play on the ups and downs of the democratizing power of the Internet

"the craft is gone"
"the craft is no longer necessary"
"technology always comes first - the artist comes after and abuses it and changes it"

"When you leave everything to the crowd, where everything is democratised, when everything is determined by the number of clicks, you are by definition undermining the seriousness of the artistic endeavour," - "There is no evidence that we are on the verge of a great new glittering cultural age, there is evidence that we may well be on the verge of a new dark age in cultural terms … where the creative world is destroyed and where all we have is cacophony and self opinion, where we have a crisis of democratised culture."Andrew Keen
