An insightful MySpace book review by Michael Fitzgerald
As author and Wall Street Journal reporter and editor Julia Angwin tells us, MySpace rose because "the time was ripe for a new kind of Internet giant to emerge - one where human creativity was at the center of the experience, not technology." In fact MySpace succeeds despite its technology, and almost despite itself. Much of its early life, as detailed in the book, is filled with what, in a polite newspaper, can only be called twerpery.
Thanks, Peter. the book is actually not about twerps but schmucks. But the Globe didn't like that word, so I had to change it (and you can feel free not to post this if you don't like the word).
