In times long past, creating content meant the backing of large sums of currency, professional teams and exclusive distribution channels. The result of this time was that creators were few and far between.
Arguably the greatest advantage of the internet is the ease of creation and distribution using the interconnectedness of the web. Creating has been made simple and communication has never been more open to the market.
The need for large production teams, expensive equipment, distribution channels, managers, producers and the like is now eliminated. The bridge has been closed.
With the tools at the disposable of most individuals, creation is more accessible than ever before.
