How i killed my Myspace

I disapprove of Myspace

Facebook has been beeping on my radar for a while as the upcoming social networking evil. They’ve been trying to integrate their advertising with their ability to share information and the fact that they own your information. First there was the whole beacon mess and now i heard that they are thinking about using people’s pictures in advertisements without having to ask or compensate. Facebook is going downhill sure but the reason i’ve killed my myspace today was not because of anything so principled. Myspace just got on my nerves. Not only is it messy and juvenile in design it’s juvenile in content. I got really tired of all the girls in bikini’s named Tom trying to be my friend and getting messages from fished accounts telling me about the latest deals on viagra, macy’s cards, ipods, or some girl named emily that likes me. So instead of deleting my myspace page and abandoning the many friends i have there i came up with a way to kill my myspace page without really deleting it. I just made everything black and included some links to my other online existences. I also included my e-mail which may be a mistake since there are tons of bots scouring myspace for e-mail accounts to spam but hopefully the spaces i broke it up with will send them off my trail. you can see my new page here. I can still log into my account and read my comments and messages but the fact that they don’t show up will hopefully encourage some friends to jump off the bandwagon and find another way to communicate with me online. I used one of those Myspace pimpers or whatever to create the code but i’ve deleted every referential link back to them from the code. here it is if you want to do the same.

hi, nice to meet you

the above statement is intended to give my blogue a more personable ambiance than the cold, web 2.0, plastic interfaced alienation of the rest of the internets. although it is a lie because i have yet to meet you please be assured that i would like to use this virtual real estate of mine to engage in dialogue with many positive, informed, and creative netizens of the web wide world such as yourself. This preemptive meeting is a self-fulfilling prophecy of our eventual association. If you enjoy tea, by all means, take this opportunity to enjoy a cup...

my name is Amir. I'm a student of Sociology and History. I live in the rural reaches of eastern Kentucky with my wife and son. I am studying to be a High School teacher where it will be my goal to inspire and nurture critical thinking skills in students. I like to blame my frequent failure to capitalize correctly on my affinity for the prolific author and poet e.e.cummings who taught me that capitalization is more useful for EMPHASIS rather than propriety whereas it is most likely the fault of a lazy left pinky or ring finger.

Enjoy your visit; it was nice to meet you.

when are you?
