Every year, People selects its World’s Most Beautiful People, Time dubs its Person of the Year and Rolling Stone crowns its Albums of the Year. But, does having a small elite choose the best make sense when the barriers to declaring the vox populi’s personal preference have fallen so low?
Originally a means for keeping loose ties among people, social media has become a way for all of us to showcase our expertise. With everyone grabbing the open microphone of the Internet, society has more data points to develop a more accurate, representative and definitive list of preferences on any topic.
This presentation will explore how the ubiquity of cultural expertise impacts the culture, from what is created to how it is discussed and valued.
The track is sponsored by the Knight Foundation.
