Ams gives the qualifier of amateur. Gee goes on to say, \"These are people who don&#39;t necessarily know what everyone else knows, but do know how to collaborate with other Pro-Ams to put knowledge to work to fulfill their intellectual and social passions.\" (20) Does this not characterize the interdisciplinary nature of digital literacies?
