The New York Times writes:
This will be remembered as the year that the old-line media mogul, the online media titan and millions of individual Web users agreed: It demands attention.
Its on Web sites like YouTube, MySpace, Dailymotion, PureVolume, GarageBand and Metacafe. Its homemade art independently distributed and inventively promoted. Its borrowed art that has been warped, wrecked, mocked and sometimes improved. Its blogs and open-source software and collaborative wikis and personal Web pages. Its word of mouth that can reach the entire world.
