Clay Shirky wrote this wonderful and frightening piece on the end of newspapers and what comes next.
My only problem with it is that he only addresses the part he’s interested in – newspapers.
His logic applies equally well to music, to television, to radio, to books, to magazines, to art – to any intellectual content however it’s packaged.
If you agree with Shirky that the system won’t bend its knee to accept the yoke of intellectual property, then you have to accept, design and prepare for a world where no one owns any idea.
Scary, but fascinating.
