Was anybody else upset that he didn't mention /lit/ in this talk about learning on the internet? He mentions Reddit and Tumblr. I have greatly, intellectually benefited from browsing /lit/ the past few years.
No, because there is nothing to be learned from /lit/.
The discussions are memes, and if not they are trash.
The books are well-known already and any literary magazine or newspaper with a culture section talks about them and their authors.
/lit/ only says what people with high status in the literary community says, and only praises what these people praise as well.
