Is there even such a thing as "mainstream" 
anymore? I mean it used to be the case that 
everybody watched the same nightly news and 
listened to the same radio station. And 
"counterculture" was growing your hair long 
and listening to rock and roll. Now the duality 
of mainstream vs. counterculture seems as 
quaint as the idea that there are only two 
genders or only two sexes. Kids don't listen to 
rock & roll to rebel, they listen to soundcloud 
emo rap, or whatever, and if the niche sound that 
speaks directly to them doesn't exist, they can 
invent it and upload it for the world to hear with 
little more than a cheap laptop.

At the other end of the LONG TAIL of the internet 
is a metaphorical infosec furry, and because of 
them there are as many small STREAMS and 
countercultures as there are individual 
people.
