The mass amateurization of publishing

Does Clay Shirky get it or what?! While the majority of Clay’s article challenges the economics of the blogging engine, his real insights lay elsewhere: “The vast majority of weblogs are amateur and will stay amateur, because a medium where someone can publish globally for no cost is ideal for those who do it for the love of the thing. Rather than spawning a million micro-publishing empires, weblogs are becoming a vast and diffuse cocktail party, where most address not “the masses” but a small circle of readers, usually friends and colleagues. This is mass amateurization, and it points to a world where participating in the conversation is its own reward.”

Clay has really defined the crux of the issue where participatory journalism sometimes clashes with traditional journalism: One is almost always for the greater good, while the other claims to be, it’s still a business. And Clay’s numbers don’t add up in their world.
