  • Yuanxuan shared from Cognitive Surplus: Creativity and Generosity in a Connected Age by Clay Shirky
    The phrase “user-generated content,” the current label for creative acts by amateurs, really describes not just personal but also social acts. Lolcats aren’t just user-generated, they are user-shared. The sharing, in fact, is what makes the making fun—no one would create a lolcat to keep for themselves. The atomization of social life in the twentieth century left us so far removed from participatory culture that when it came back, we needed the phrase “participatory culture” to describe it.
