Not every organism reproduces in the same way. Some ways are appropriate for the internet and some aren’t. Mammals are very concerned with their offspring. Dandelions just let them blow away in the wind, hoping they’ll lodge somewhere and grow. Both dandelions and mammals are thriving organisms, and you can’t knock success.
Dandelions and artists have a lot in common in the age of the Internet. This is, of course, the age of unlimited, zero-marginal-cost copying. If you blow your works into the net like a dandelion clock on the breeze, the net itself will take care of the copying costs. Your fans will paste-bomb your works into their mailing list, making 60,000 copies so fast and so cheaply that figuring out how much it cost in aggregate to make all those copies would be orders of magnitude more expensive than the copies themselves.
