The Myth of the Creative Class

Jeff Jarvis wrote this very interesting and provocative blog post today. Here’s just a brief taste:

The internet doesn’t make us more creative, I don’t think. But it does enable what we create to be seen, heard, and used. It enables every creator to find a public, the public he or she merits. And that takes creation out of the proprietary hands of the supposed creative class.

Interested? Then read more. I had the good fortune to meet Jeff last year through a mutual acquaintance and spend some brainstorming time in a room with some other smart people. If one day I can write with 10% of his eloquence I will consider it a day of reckoning. I did make a more feeble attempt with my reply.
