Clay Shirkey got us thinking about amaturization. I still have a few questions about the subject, mostly relating to the industries that are being directly effected by mass amaturization. What’s going to happen to the media? Is it going to become irrelevant, or will it adapt and survive? Also, how is amaturization currently effecting the media?
Lanier’s book is interesting, too. I’m only 45 pages in, and it doesn’t seem like it’s about amaturization. It seems like it’s about raising a critical eye to the mass digitalization of our society. He talks about forming humans to fit digital molds. How is it happening? I need more evidence before I jump onboard. Also, what could have been the alternatives to the locked-in methods that dominate?
