Stephen Colbert Report is Amateur blogging and Web 2.0 a cult? Andrew Keen believes so!

August 17, 2007

As many may know Stephen Colbert spends much of his time on the internet surfing blogs etc.  So how do you think he reacted when Andrew Keen barged in and started accusing the internet of ruining our culture.  He said that when people pirate things like movies, art and songs it ruins our culture.  Stephen Colbert disagreed with this saying that it actually helps distribute culture.  Then he went on and accused Andrew Keen of being a levelist who believes that certain people are way better than others.  Andrew Keen casually shrugged it off and said, “what’s wrong with that.”   So to me it seems that to a point Andrew Keen is right that the internet is destroying old culture.  But I think blogging and Web 2.0 are new culture, things change and you can’t stop that.
