Andrew Keen on Colbert Report: "Even the Nazis didn't put artists out of work."

Andrew Keen, notorious spammer, failed Web 1.0 entrepreneur, blog-hating blogger, and luddite troll author of Cult of the Amateur, appeared on the Colbert Report last evening. It's well worth watching.

Picture 3-58(Slightly paraphrased transcript:)

Colbert: I thought the Internets was building our culture.

Keen: No, it's destroying our culture.

Colbert: I can go on the Internet and find pictures of any old art I want. That's culture, isn't it?

Keen: That's stealing our culture.

Colbert: But it's still culture. The Nazis stole culture, but it was still culture.

Keen: It's worse than that… Even the Nazis didn't put artists out of work.

Its gets even better from there. Link
