- re 1: reservations amongst experts against wiki's
- re 2: eg Brittanica, recording industry
- re 3: digital tools make it easier for none-experts to produce good-quality stuff (eg. camera's, music recording equipment), amateur journalists, production of good open-source software. Even: first affordable open source 3D printer ($400) has become available → people will also be able to produce things.
monopolists lose their monopoly
Logical that they are the ones that protest most.
It doesn't mean that experts or professionals or factories lose reason of existance, they remain valuable if they can do things better, cheaper, etc. But they have to compete solely on quality of their work now, not on monopolies to access, etc. They lose the possibility to abuse power.
