Can't Wait For The MySpace Generation To Run For Office

from the now-that-ought-to-be-fun dept

Our discussion on the fear mongering article about MySpace could probably be summed up as saying that it's about time we started teaching people common sense. Taking a slightly different view on all of this is David Canton, who points out that all of the non-common sense by folks today, posting all kinds of personal information to the web is going to come back to bite the MySpace generation in a few years when they start running for office. Of course, on the bright side, maybe it will completely weed out a series of potentially common senseless politicians by automatically disqualifying them. At least we can hope.

    Rather offensive if you ask me...

    Well, just let me say, I am part of the "my space generation," although I realize myspace for what it is and, consequently, am not dumb enough to post my entire life on-line for anyone who feels like reading it, so no, i don't use myspace, but this article seems more of a blanket statement encompassing the whole generation, while yes, i do know many people who use myspace, it is not fair to generalize about the entire generation...
