Democracy in Media: Sirius, Adam Curry and “The Economics of Abundance”

Interesting post about what Adam Curry's deal with Sirius really means about the "citizen's media triumph", which it isn't.

Alex Rowland hits the nail on the head: "(I can hear the executive meeting reaching the crescendo, “Hey, instead of us deciding what people are going to want to hear, let’s ask Adam Curry! He involved in all that Blogging and Podcast stuff! He’ll know!”)"

"It’s just that Adam’s going to be better at sorting through the chaos than anyone else at Sirius, and instead of content originating from the creative staff at Sirius; it comes from a bunch of individuals. But, like Current.TV, it’s just replacing the tyranny of a few guys in Hollywood with the tyranny of popular public opinion (or in this case, Adam’s opinion)."
