"Andrew Keen, Silicon Valley pioneer turned Web 2.0 contrarian, comes to The Club at the ICA to argue that the Web 2.0 revolution is killing our culture and undermining our economy. His deeply controversial book, The Cult of the Amateur, seeks to expose the economic, ethical and social dangers of a digital culture where author and audience are one and the same – a culture, Keen argues, where genuine talent and expert opinion is lost in the glut of 'user generated nonsense'. Where plagiarism and piracy are rife, is our creative culture really at risk? The talk will be followed by a drinks receptions and book-signing by the author."
