I love the democratisation of everything. For me, democracy is not about empowering government to rule. It is about breaking power down into individual units. As in people. We don't need anyone to rule us - we need constraints on power and enablers. Then everyone can do what they like (without getting in the way of others... obviously).
Attention and interest are two of those things that are being democratised. The clip below is of the mad crazy John the Potter interviewing another artist. One is clearly more tormented, one is more well... John.
I think it is great that people can whip out a camera and create their own channels on YouTube.
