[User Picture]04:34 am - It's not often that I voice a core belief...
...but a conversation with a friend on IM made me realize... well, made me solidify a realization I had ages back, regarding what the internet is truly accomplishing.

Unlike all the ads claiming it on the radio and what-not, the internet is truly removing the middle-man from artistic endeavors. More than anything else, it's proving that Information wants to be free! is missing one very important seven-letter word. Flowing. Information wants to be free flowing! is vastly more accurate, I believe. Middle-men, steps between final creation and final consumption of a product, are obstacles to that free flow.

Removing those middle-men and allowing for things like hundreds of fans to pay an artist to continue a small work, up to hundreds of thousands of artists getting a studio to continue producing a beloved series, are both examples of what the internet is allowing for today. The free flow of information. Not without cost, but without obstacles of time or distance.2 commentsLeave a comment
