Here we are, 2010, super-connected and always “on” – once upon a time you had to be in a big city to find the sub-cultures that would emerge and topple the old order of things. Think rock and roll, think blues, think jazz.
Now any glimmer of something new becomes a trend piece in the New York Times.
This is not a bad thing. There is more to enjoy. The whole of human creativity, no matter how dubious the “creativity” part, can be on display for the world to see.
Life is good.
