Okay, so I’m a little late to notice this post from the Writers of the Future blog, but still, it’s pretty cool to see my name in pixels.
Is that the new dream, in our Internet Age, do you think? Once people wanted to see their name in lights, now do they long to see their name in pixels? Or is the internet just too democratic that way–if anybody can MySpace then why are you special for being on the internet?
Maybe we need gatekeepers–official sites, contests, editors, etc.–to act as a filter for the onslaught of the internet, for an age where no one is special because everyone is because no one is.
Maybe the new yearning is to be on reality TV. If that’s the case, they can keep it.
