Ben Huh has a post on Paid Content that begins defining Popular Culture
and Internet Culture. http://paidcontent.org/article/419-a-guide-to-the-cultural-battle-that-is-reshaping-the-media-business/
Popular Culture comes from the media barons who think they should tell
the audience what to think, Internet Culture is bottom up, fools like
me. As the number of people who stumble into Internet Culture increases,
the number of offerings will swamp the top down offerings of the
broadcasters and publishers.
As each side spins the quality of “their” offerings, I am reminded of
Law, “90% of everything is crud.”
Last October, Google invited Ben Huh to speak on copyright in
Washington, and he
was elegant. In defining Popular Culture and Internet Culture so
the differences are sharply drawn, Ben is crisp and precise.
