On The New Media and the Attention Economy: "Syndication"

But my comment is also meant in the context of new media. Previously there was a gateway of arbiters to prevent young writers whose work wasn't deemed worthy of publication and therefore mass consumption. It's not my job as a consumer to nurture and encourage young voices with constructive criticism.

I actually do want to encourage solipsistic assholes to acknowledge their talent is sub-par and give up.

I fear syndication opportunities like this are only encouraging a generation of schlocky, narcissistic writers to hold out hope that they will be discovered.
