Deconstructing the MySpace Threat
May 29, 2006
Good post linking to and summarizing an interview with Danah Boyd and Henry Jenkins on the subject of MySpace. Note the consistency of theme regarding culture and identity with Wes Cooper's paper (below). "As a society, we are at a moment of transition when the most important social relationships may no longer be restricted to those we conduct face to face with people in our own immediate surroundings but may also include a large number of relationships which are conducted over vast geographic distances." My own experience is a testament to that.
