Le culte de l’amateur, encore

Jeff Jarvis revient un brin sur le livre « The cult of the amateur » d’Andrew Keen. Comme plusieurs autres, Jarvis a refusé de débattre avec l’auteur, jugeant que ce serait une mauvaise idée d’accorder de l’importance à ce livre mal foutu.

« I said the book is just plain bad. It’s sloppily researched and written. It is link- and PR-bait disguised as a polemic. If it were intelligently, thoughtfully presented, I’d be happy to talk about these ideas. But it’s not. The irony is that Keen accuses us all of being hacks but his book is just a hack. I told them I chose not to play into this publicity mill on my blog and wouldn’t do so on the air, either. Here’s the interesting part: They each said they’d heard just this same perspective from a lot of people they’d called looking for debaters. »

C’est à se demander si le journaliste du Devoir a bien lu le livre…
