The Wall Street Journal online has published an exchange between Andrew Keen (”The Cult of the Amateur”) and me. The full version is here. The condensed version is here. (I recommend the full version.) [Tags: andrew_keen web2.0 cult_of_the_amateur everything_is_miscellaneous ]

    Would you repost this so that the links work?? It’s scripted html (with no links).

    I think you got the best of Keen in that battle.

    At the end though, you talk about what’s happening on the Web as being our culture’s hope. This is the kind of rosy talk you used to wrap up your Open Source interview. Is it really *the* hope? Enabling *the * hope? Well since the web is US I assume you mean we are *the* hope.

    In any case, if Keen had been able to respond one more time, maybe he would have said *something* like he did here:

    And then, in my mind at least, he would have left the lasting impression in the debate.
