Andrew Keen on "The Cult of the Amateur: How Today's Internet is Killing Our Culture"

March 22, 2009

Andrew Keen is a Silicon Valley entrepreneur. He's also the author of "The Cult of the Amateur: How Today's Internet is Killing Our Culture." Keen regrets the absence of any editorial filtering or even author attribution on web sites like Wikipedia. He tells Jim Fleming that he thinks users have to have some way of intelligently assessing information. Just making it available isn't enough.
