If you refer to "self-publishing," "the new- [impassioned and informed]
amateurism," or the noble "samizdat," then I of course, disagree --
there's not nearly enough!

The danger for you "jerks" is that if DIY art continues to flourish (and
when Art's Distinction finally and completely dissolves), it just might be
confused as "culture;" culture-here-and-now-and-in-the-main, that doesn't
require incestuous institutional "back-peddling" to strategically construe
their self-serving, insular "critical relevance."
