Is blogging destroying our culture or not?

I’m really struggling over whether Andrew Keen actually believes his own thesis, or whether he has just hit monster pitch for the Web 2.0 backlash so popular in some quarters… Jay Rosen reckons that in fact, the war between bloggers and the mainstream is sooo over (and that was more than two years ago)… Personally, on this subject at least, I’m with John Milton and Tony Benn…Adds: There’s more verbatim from Keen at the FT site.
