For an art scene to exist, for artists within it to make the leap into greatness, hubs need to exist. Like-minded people need a space where their ideas can commingle and become better, where they can borrow, hook up, network, steal, and stab each other in the back. In the past, this meant a physical locale. New York’s advertising scene had Madison Avenue, the hippies had the intersection of Haight and Ashbury, punk rock had CBGB, glam metal had the Sunset Strip, grunge had Seattle. With the Internet, people no longer needed to share the same physical space within the same hours of the day.
