Clean the streets

Blogging makes everyone a writer or a critic. MySpace makes everyone famous until there are so many famous people that no-one’s really famous for anything at all. Twitter turns every twitch, fart and half-baked thought into a global press statement. “American Idol” makes everyone a potential celebrity. The Renaissance/Romantic idea of the special person, the genius, the “superhero”, is dying before our very eyes. Everybody wants to be a rockstar and nobody wants to clean the streets.
