because his web start-up failed, or he has a small dick, or both....mr.keen has decided that the internet, and in specific youtube are evil.
his thesis is that because youtube is so easy to use and that anyone can now become a publisher of multimedia products, this is somehow undermining something.
oh yeah, that something is a game of intellectual elitism called copyright.
further he rants that everyone and his brother is now able to post a video of thier less than concert-ready version of whatever instrument they have been practicing on.
guilty as charged andrew.
i didn`t go to julliard or even learn to read music, but guess what, i can play and perform music as entertaining and of equal or better quality than many who have met your criteria for expertise.
and so have many posting thier efforts on-line via youtube and the like.
and the fact that this has threatened the institution of copyright and somehow diminished the institutions of ostensible higher learning makes me wonder what the game was about other than to control artists product for the profit of bureaucrats....and to control the information flow of learning and accomplishment into to narrow streams.
now, having said this andrew, i would hate to think that the man who operated surgically on my knee relied on youtube videos for his instruction.....
.....but you can still fuck off for being an elitist dick hiding your failures and shortcomings behind a moral arguement.
