Legacy Media no longer has dominant control of information flows. Gatekeepers have almost been deleted; they are no longer a problem when it comes to the distribution of information. Due to the internet as distributed network, social media has allowed individuals to access and add information and thus information flows freely.
The attention economy demands that content itself is no longer valuable. Aggregators and curators of content are now valuable in a free content environment. Sites like reddit and 4chan allow information flow freely with no restrictions. These sites invite participation of the individual and when the individual participates, content is distributed. Gatekeepers no longer restrict content, content is now monitored by gate-watchers.
So, how long will it be until gatekeepers are completely erased and non-existent?
