 (@)(@)     {0,0}  Is there even such a thing
 (~~~~)    ./)_)   as "mainstream" anymore? I
 (>vv<)      " "   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.
