"In MySpace, millions of people have opted out of pre-made templates that 'work' in exchange for Ugly. Ugly, when compared to pre-existing notions of taste, is a bummer. But Ugly as a representation of mass experimentation and learning is pretty damn cool. Regardless of what you might think, the actions you take to make your MySpace page Ugly are pretty sophisticated. Over time, as consumer-created media engulfs the other kind, it's possible that completely new norms develop around the notions of talent and artistic ability."
