‘Cult of the Amateur’ looks at Internet’s influence

This is my latest book review on CharlestonCurrents.com. I think it’s a great read for anyone exploring the influence of the internet on our culture.

Andrew Keen examines the effect of the Internet on our culture in “The Cult of the Amateur.” Whether you concur with his premise that the Internet is having a negative impact, all can understand the need to be cautious. I agree that just because something is online, it does not mean it is true. However, I am less quick to diminish the value of some contributors to the Web 2.0 realm. “The Cult of the Amateur” is a thought-provoking book that can spark a lively debate between adopters of Web 2.0 and those who have not quite embraced this new world order.
