this is just a theory i’ve been kicking around for awhile. have you noticed there is a LOT of everything nowadays? a lot of books. a lot of CDs. a lot of websites. a lot of good stuff. a lot of junk too.
we have so many choices we don’t know where to begin. i for one could spend an hour surfing amazon.com alone.
the old saying that “if you build it they will come” holds true for the net. how many people posting on youtube.com actually thought about being a “movie producer” til…youtube.com? maybe they’re just being a producer because YTC put the stupid idea in their head that they could. “hey look! here’s a site where everyone can post. send yours in today!!” and they do.
enter the “open system” of being discovered. everyone can enter. and everyone votes. the majority will win. it’s the people’s choice, instead of others deciding what we will watch, we’ll vote on what we like.
call me narcissistic or whatever: i don’t believe in the majority. groups have been proven to be wrong in their actions most of the time. group-think is a phenonmenon left over from our primate ancestors. homo sapien uses group think. homo excelsior(higher man0 thinks for himself.
