Fimoculous pointed me to a fascinating story in New York magazine that compares rock and roll in the 1950s to today’s online/social networking youth culture and says they both stake out their day’s generation gap.
Social networking sites are transformational for some. But I’d argue that they’ll never approach the enduring cultural significance of rock music, which helped America overcome racial divides.
But it’s obvious which side of the MySpace generation gap I’m on.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to shop for a cabin in the woods with no electricity where I can raise my daughters.
