good question. generally i don't care, because i think that mainstream 
media is always going to be like this & i'm busy enough already without 
worrying about that kind of thing; but i do get pissed off at how it 
invisibilises so much excellent work  - whether through deliberate 
gatekeeping or sheer laziness; it is not that difficult to find out 
about digital art.
