At Community Arts Network, author Tom Borrup,  says the way people consume and produce "culture" has changed. Using California's Silicon Valley area as an example, he notes recent research that found "the cultural infrastructure far more decentralized, nonhierarchical, participatory and culturally diverse than in typical U.S. cities and metropolitan areas." 

The future, it seems, will be defined by user-generated content--a Do it Yourself culture, in which individuals pick and choose their cultural markers, just as you choose your preferred content here on the internet.

I hope the future has good taste.
