The MySpace Experiment


So, this is an experiment.

I read an online article about the Delta Zeta National Sorority kicking a group of sisters out the door for (apparently) not being attractive enough.

The article went on to discuss how MySpace has become an environment where attractiveness has become a commodity, and people are more interested in “friends” that meet a certain physical profile. In fact, the emerging suspicion is that people on MySpace are “renting” profiles in an attempt to appear more attractive to strangers than they actually view themselves. This is accomplished by using pictures of other people (possibly models) and making false claims around their accomplishments, financial status – and, obviously marital status. If this is accurate, then this might indicate that MySpace has lost it’s social integrity.

I fired up a MySpace profile to see what type of reaction a 46 year old white guy living in Alpharetta “Horse Country” who is happily married with kids can generate. As you can see from my photo, I don’t qualify as a model. I am, by most definitions, successful as a family and business man.

Stay tuned for updates around this exercise.

Peace to my Brothers and Sisters.

    […] think that bugs me is I did something similar to this about three years ago with my ill-fated myspace experiment. I was pretty clear that I’m happily married and not interested in hooking up with women. […]

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
