This is part generational study and part truth.
The short version: two kids meet, don’t hit it off, one starts taking secret shots of the other in public and posts them to a fake stalker blog, the other finds out, isn’t pissed and interviews him for a school assignment.
That’s as short as I could make it.
If you’re like me, you’ll read this with morbid fascination or something similar. It’s kind of like watching the social habits of another culture. I was struck most by the apathy; neither seems to care much about the incident. It feels very routine, which is creepy to me, an old fart.
The key takeaway:
You know when Mark Zuckerberg says stuff like privacy doesn’t matter and Facebook makes formerly private information public without notice and all the tech pundits (most of whom are older than Zuck) go bananas tearing out their hair about how stupid and crazy that is? Now you know where Zuck and Facebook are coming from.
Too bad Facebook isn’t only for a single generation.
