Wingnut of the year: Andrew Keen

This guy may be the most pompous ass I've ever heard. "The cult of the amateur"? Give me a fucking break, man....the internet isn't killing culture, it's expanding it.

Eh, I don't know if he's a wingnut. I think he's just plain wrong.

More idiot than wingnut. I haven't read his book, but I've seen him on TV a couple of times and he seems to assume that the editors and gatekeepers are actually fact-checking and otherwise doing their jobs. And that the experts are actually experts. I had no idea that the whole intellectual property issue was such a clear cut matter of right and wrong.
