Great piece by Jeremy Keith.
For me, this lies at the heart of what the web does. The web removes the need for tastemakers who get to decide what gets published. The web removes the need for gatekeepers who get to decide what gets saved.
I love this last part...
The web has no quality control. The web is a mess. The web is for everyone.
I recommend reading the whole thing: Adactio: Journal—Web! What is it good for?
