On February 5, 2007, I blogged about an article in New York Magazine called “Kids, the Internet, and the End of Privacy.” (Read my original blog post here) In a follow up to the article published on February 15, they quote from several blog posts that they liked, LEESEAN.NET was among them. They quote me and link back to my blog. Hooray for my 15 minutes of fleeting D-list internet fame!
• Slob: “Wow — so the Internet generation has collectively huge balls.”
• Leesean.net: “One of the girls they profile was born in 1989 — that makes me feel old. But I totally identify with them. I’m a total Net Narcissist Exhibitionist Extraordinaire.”
• Bout Manje…: “The idea that this is essentially a *generation* gap is a bit overplayed. It is a magazine article, after all, and therefore sensationalized.”
• happysloth: “There are still some things that I want to lock away and not share with everyone. Even these teenagers have learned to tailor what they post for their audience. I think I’m the old schooler of the new school.”
• Shiny Red Button: “Rather than decrying the loss of privacy or shying from lurking dangers, real or imagined, they’ve embraced this open culture and are using it to their advantage.”
• UnBeige: “Unless you’re a kid yourself, reading this is a sure fire way to make yourself feel old.”
