A Dark View of the Future, 2014–Impact of the Amateurs

This Flash animation gives a narrative view of the potential outcome (from the “future perspective of being in 2014 and looking back”) that we can expect when, as Andrew Keen warns, the “Cult of Amateur” pushes the experts out the door.  Is this a world we want to have?

View the animation, and then please, come back here and share your thoughts.  Do you see this as a potential? Why, or why not?

nb: I had originally posted a link to this well done Flash production back in 2006.  Because it gives “future  history” (that is, presents things as fact that at the time had not yet occured) the timeline is somewhat muddied.  I can certainly say it was produced before May of 2006.
