Web 2.0 – An Infinite Number of Monkeys?

The story goes that if you put an infinite number of monkeys in a room with a load of typewriters, they will eventually produce the entire works of Shakespeare. According to author Andrew Keen in his new book The Cult of the Amateur, this is exactly what’s happening with us bloggers. Web 2.0 has finally unleashed us on all those typewriters but we’re producing not great works of literature but a deluge of bad writing and inaccurate information.

Well, yes, we love you too Andrew.

If you’d like to know more about what Andrew thinks about us, what I think about what Andrew thinks, and get a chance to share your own opinions on the matter, then check out the latest post at The Secret Of Life.

    Well, yes. Soon, everybody and her dog will have a blog – and the dog’s puppies will have blogs as well.

    So hopefully our blogs are finding a way to cut through the ever-increasing noise – not by shouting louder, but by influencing more.

    That’s my philosophy, at any rate.

    P.S: If you get a moment, pop over to my blog and say hello, because I’d really appreciate it! I’ve plugged you, btw. :)
