Finding value on the web
I think Weinberger crushes him. Then again, Keen never seems to me to quite believe what he's saying about this stuff, or at least to buy into his own extreme rhetoric.
As Weinberger says to him: Andrew, the mud you throw obscures the issues you raise. Porn sites, silly posts, monkeys, cockroaches, toilet seats. This rhetoric isn't helpful. In fact, in your attempt to be controversial, you're playing into the hands of political and economic forces that would like the Internet to be nothing more than an extension of the mass media... It's a shame because we need to be taking seriously the issues you raise. But to talk about them, we need to get past the notion that the Web is all dreck all the time and that it is nothing but a great "seducer" of taste...
My take on the subject here.
