cofax7: Alpaca is confused (Alpaca -- Huh?)
From: [personal profile] cofax7
You have good points here. And yeah, I totally agree that drawing some distinctions is difficult because there are multiple factors at work. Some folks who are comfortable with the non-hierarchical threaded-nature of LJ are not comfortable with remix culture, or are comfortable with remix culture but think that calling out someone's behavior as racist is the equivalent of a thermonuclear device. Or someone may have a great awareness of their own privilege and be really comfortable with LJ--and still think that unauthorized derivative fiction is the devil's own handiwork.

I do think there's something to be said for [personal profile] jonquil's multicast vs publishing distinction; or for the transformative vs generative axis. Both of those make sense to me.

And I totally agree, no subgroup of fandom is monolithic.

But these tensions exist, and how do we address them and attempt to bridge the gap, if we can't define what the differences are? As I said in the panel that inspired [personal profile] oliviacirce's post, I don't want to merely outlive old-school fandom.
