Issue 35 - 03 | Against You: A Manifesto in Favor of Audience

By Andrew Keen
Published June 6, 2007 8:59 p.m.
If a tree falls in the forest, and there is no one there to hear it, does it make a sound? Andrew Keen asserts that the same riddle can be applied to Web 2.0. While new Internet technology has revolutionized traditional media and allows everyone to be writer/creator, if everyone is writer/creator, then just who is left to listen to the cacophony?

About Andrew Keen | Andrew Keen’s deeply controversial Cult of the Amateur (to be published June 5, 2007) is the first book that exposes the economic, ethical and social dangers of the Web 2.0 revolution. Andrew hasn’t always been a contrarian. In the mid-Nineties, he was a member of that generation of Silicon Valley visionaries who pioneered the Internet. He founded Audiocafe.com in 1995 and established it as one of the most highly trafficked websites of the late Nineties. Today, he is the host of the Internet chat show afterTV.com and regularly appears on the web, television and radio. His work can be found on his CultoftheAmateur blog, his syndicated Podtech video-essay, his ZDNet column as well as in traditional publications.
