[Walter Soyka] "Outliers was a book about exceptional high achievers whose hidden advantages, combined with hard work and learning, allow them to excel.

That was one theme. I think the larger one was that when you have a large mass of people who have access to new tools and technologies, the pool of individuals who can enter and excel grows.

One primary story in Outliers if you recall, was how Bill Gates "luck" in having his mom on the school committee and in a position to get "time share" on a terminal that let Gates gain experience with computers earlier than his peers. Yes, he had the brainpower and talent, but it was also ACCESS to the technology that drove his career.

Same brainpower - no access - and Bill Gates is probably a successful guy, but not the worlds richest guy.

Now you have literally a MILLION people gaining video editing experience. So the group who will take it seriously and excel will come from a much broader pool than before.

The opportunity migrates from the sons and daughters of the "elites" in the TV biz or in Hollywood, to the sons and daughters of anyone. That's change. And pretty much the definition of "democratization."

Nothing more than that.

"Before speaking out ask yourself whether your words are true, whether they are respectful and whether they are needed in our civil discussions."-Justice O'Connor
