Facebook

Jesse Hirsh, CBC News, Sept 25, 2007
Commentary by Stephen Downes

The question is not only, can Facebook survive its new mass popularity, but also, can we survive Facebook? Canadians, especially, have taken to the site. "If, as Marshall McLuhan said, the medium is the message, then perhaps we Canadians are being changed by simply using the site as frequently and intensely as we have been in recent months." I'm not worried; Canadians are pretty wired as it is, and a site like Facebook isn't going to change the national psyche too much. Related: will Microsoft pay ten billion dollars for Facebook?
