6 September 2006

Yesterday I finally chanced to see my friend John on the telly in a reality TV show. Woot! He mentioned how he'd been plucked into a world of public school and Oxbridge and it reminded me that unless I make friends with more Real People soon, I'll be first to the wall when the digital revolution comes.
 
In the UK, reality TV's been helping redefine a dialectic for a decade:
- egalitarianism vs the class system
Then, more broadly:
- egalitarianism vs professionalism, specialism and elitism
And now for the bold march to victory!
- egalitarianism vs meritocracy
