I forgot one detail when reporting on the brilliantly researched Washington Post story, "MySpace Is So Last Year" (subtitle: "Please read our paper please"). The Post uses the following quote as its story-ending clincher:
Evan Hansen, a sophomore at Falls Church High School, said he didn't buy into the MySpace hype and is waiting for the craze to die.
"Over time, people are going to get sick of talking to people on the computer," he said. "I just think people will want to spend more time with each other — without the wall of technology."
You heard it here first: The Internet is just a fad.
