Quite, but doesn't it rather feel rather too close to the truth? Everyone is a content provider, an expert, every opinion or mad-cap idea has to be published and debated... ;):unsure:

The last sentence is a joke, yes, but the article directly quotes the genuine head of the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.  So it likely is yet another pointless 'study'.

 

Stats are often to be taken with a pinch of salt: "for every person who reads, listens to, or watches some form of media on the internet, there are approximately 2,000 individuals engaged in creating new online content".  Yes, well, all those 2,000 people are all consumers of online content, too, no?  We are all feeding ourselves.

The article may be hyperbole, but it is close to the truth. In this brave new digital world, everyone is a potential "content" provider. If you think the competition is bad now, wait until we hit the quantum world. My poor little, aging analog brain gets tired just thinking about it.

Hey folks, I was trying to lighten the forums up. Life as a stock photographer is tough but that doesn't mean we can't take a bit of time for amusement once in a while. :D
