That’s Max Weber, with whom Fishbowl LA was obsessed in (ahem) college. Weber was the first person in the Western world to think analytically about subcultures: how they subsume each other over the course of the history of a society.
And so, I think Max Weber would have a lot to say about the Sundance Film Festival in 2005. I think he would say that a once vibrant-but-annoying form of bourgeoise cultural expression (indie film) is fading and being subsumed by a new vibrant-but-annoying cultural form, which is to say, blogging. Which means that this site should be noted by any cultural historians out there.
