Myspace: the business of Spam 2.0
Really interesting reading about myspace at Valleywag: Myspace: The Business of Spam 2.0 (Exhaustive Edition). This article points out a number of things about myspace that I wish I had known about or noticed much earlier. For example, did you know that Tom Anderson (everybody’s friend Tom) didn’t create Myspace, but was hired for PR purposes to give it a friendly feel? The real creators were at the peak of a successful career as spammers. Very nice read, a bit of an exposé. Found thanks to Michael Zimmer.
