Amateurs are people who do otherwise skilled work on spec or simply as a hobby, because technology and capitalism have made powerful creative tools available to common consumers that lack expertise, professional experience, or education for a field that can have high expectations or legal restrictions for what can and cannot be submitted for approval.
Many amateurs have access to desk top computers and recording equipment to publish content on the internet that is not Bohemian or avant-garde because it is available to anyone to analyze or deconstuct, often ruthlessly because the content is available to anyone and no longer an underground art in a city or community. Because of that, the content becomes kitsch rather than relevant and potentially influential on mainstream content.
