Lawrence Lessig on Technology
To us, at least us Americans, today, the word "amateurs" has a very different connotation. It connotes a second class of creators; creators who are inferior to the professional. We think of the guitarist who tried to make it as a rocker during his 20s, and instead became an investment banker in his 30s.
Digital technologies are expanding the opportunity for these amateurs. The obvious case is the rock band, still not good enough to get a record deal, but who can sell enough digital downloads for it to make sense to keep the band going.
