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

Dreidel-spinning squirrel monkeys
