ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the falsity of the idea that user-generated content is new in the U.S. He argues that people have engaged in publishing and authoring tools for a long period of time. As evidence, he cites the existence of a popular song in 1970s titled "Convoy" and the occurrence of citizens band (CB) radios which allowed American voice to be registered across the airwaves.
