Please, please tell us this recent LinkedIn post* is not indicative of the future of online publishing, digital publishing, or (indeed) publishing in general. If it is, it is not just the “guy down the street” who is going to suffer. If it is, we are all going to be buried under a mass of auto-generated vapid content, at best, and more likely, an avalanche of useless, error-ridden poppycock.
*We erased the LinkedIn’s user’s profile information and also part of the URL that might have indicated something about their identity. We wish to point out a potential problem–not shame any individuals.
