When there were gatekeepers, the gap was smaller. People who knew that they could create fame were careful (often) to bestow it on things and people that they believed had something to offer.
As the race for fame becomes ever more breakneck, though, that requirement is fading.
While it’s a convenient shortcut, the signal of ‘famous’ is no longer closely related to the desire for ‘good’.
