ABSTRACT
The author talks about participation inequality on the Internet. According to the author, many believe that mass market preferences and tastes are an indication of quality content and correct answers. She stated that 90% of Internet users do not make content. The author asserted that social networking and the spread of Web 2.0 technologies attach new importance to expertise location, a trend that collides head-on with the dilemma of participation inequality.
