Andrew Keen is a British-born digital media entrepreneur turned cultural critic and journalist. In 2007, he published the book The Cult of the Amateur: How Today's Internet is Killing Our Culture which argued that the Web 2.0 revolution is too utopian, and leads to a decimation of valuable parts of our culture. As solutions to the problems Keen diagnoses, he suggests Citizendium as an alternative to Wikipedia, greater parental involvement, and greater enforcement of laws against online gambling.
