smacking down Jaron Lanier & 'World Wide Mush'

"Small and large, the possibility for collective action is empowering people to resist injustice, call for change in politics in attitudes, develop new tools to improve human lives. You don't get innovation? You can't foster creativity? I say bollocks to that."

Lanier's just another of those whining snobs who feel their special contribution diluted by the flood of innovation and creativity. Another incumbent grizzling that their monopoly on specialness is being weakened.
