Andrew Keen wins today’s Raging Dumbass award. I just watched an interview with him on a rerun of the Colbert Report. This guy is the epitome of the arrogant elitist who thinks the world owes him something. He thinks the internet is a terrible thing because it allows the common folk to create art and that this somehow takes money out of the mouths of professional artists. He couldn’t seem to stop using the word “stealing” when talking about how people use the internet (as if it were even possible to steal things via the internet).
Congratulations, Andrew Keen! For being an enemy of social progress and of human civilization as a whole, you’ve earned today’s Raging Dumbass award!
