Irritated by condescending cluelessness

Bruno Giussani writes at Lunch over IP: The originality of banality:
"What's transformative here is not the 'world as the audience' - most blogs, most YouTube videos, most Flickr photostreams etc only have tiny audiences - but the irrepressible possibility to express, create, suggest, tell, discuss, relate, share, which was until recently (until the Internet came along) hindered by costs, technology, and structures. Does it produce banality, as Sutherland suggests? Idiocy, as Bolz puts it? I would say that it produces a mirror of life: and while in life there is certainly a lot of banality, there is also alot of wisdom and originality that can finally express itself."
Bruno's full post is worth reading.
