The Internet and Me
An article about Stephen Fry's (a UK celebrity) opinion on some of the wonders of the internet. He comments on Twitter on a medium for announcing new things so that the press does not have to follow him around demanding interviews when he can simply put it on Twitter and point them to the website. He also has a bunch of other interesting opinions on things like a "Red Light District" on the web, how to be a web snob, texting abbreviations, email, books and internet, and a few others. I think its interesting to have a celebrity be so "addicted" to the internet and its technologies. It makes me wonder how many of the US celebrities, like famous actors and singers all have personal Facebook or Twitter pages not managed by their record labels or agents.
