Online culture

Amongst the general hoo-ha over whether Wikipedia is indeed rubbish or not, I saw this little comment by Kevin Wired Kelly, a lot of whose writing I like.

"With the steady advance of new ways to share, the Web has embedded itself into every class, occupation, and region ... In part because of the ease of creation and dissemination, online culture is the culture."
The culture? Nought out of ten. Really. Nought out of ten for that. There is no such thing as the culture. Isn't now. Never was. Never will be. And thank heavens or whatever for that.

[For the a great start on the hoo-ha trail, try Matt Jones' post.
