Item the Second: They take over our technology

What happens, you may ask, when ignorance meets egoism meets bad taste meets mob rule?  The monkeys take over. Say good-bye to today’s experts and cultural gatekeepers — our reporters, news anchors, editors, music companies, and Hollywood movie studios. In today’s cult of the amateur, the monkeys are running the show. With their infinite typewriters, they are authoring the future. And we may not like how it reads. — Andrew Keen, The Cult of the Amateur

Item the Third: They adopt our traditions

Whyte is a member of the board of governors of the Donner Canadian Foundation, a senior fellow of Massey College at the University of Toronto, a trustee of the McGill Institute for the Study of Canada, and a co-founder of the McGill Observatory in Media and Public Policy.
