INFORUM Salons present
Web 2.0: Amateur Hour or Mass-ive Knowledge?

Andrew Keen, Author, The Cult of the Amateur: How the Internet Is Killing our Culture
Jimmy Wales, Founder, Wikipedia
David Ewing Duncan, Chief Correspondent, NPR's "Biotech Nation"; Correspondent, NOVA's "ScienceNow" - Moderator


In today's self-broadcasting culture, where amateurism is celebrated and anyone with an opinion can post a video on YouTube, change an entry on Wikipedia or publish reviews on Yelp, we increasingly turn to the collective intelligence of large numbers of people. Should we rely on the "wisdom of the crowds," trusting that they are smarter than the expert few? Or is Web 2.0 weakening traditional media to the point where we only have opinion and chaos? Wikipedia's Wales and author Keen go head to head in this debate.
