Heather Ferreira commented on Betrayed by the Zeitgeist she once channeled, Tina Brown invokes it one last time>>Is The Social Network as innovative in its revelation of the way we live in the era of social media as Network was of the television-saturated '70s? << Nope. Quit trying to import relevance, gravity and immortality into an era absent of all three, and you know it. Those three attributes belong to an era that ended the moment this digital one began. Grace belongs to analog. Your words and mine on this page cease relevance and become forgotten garbage the instant the person reading them right now spots another irrelevant clickable lede thirteen inches up on their screens, clicks it, and vanishes to read the next tasteless puffed-popcorn "storylette". We are in the styrofoam age, you journos invented it, you journos loved it, and it's now too late for you journos to mourn it. As Stephen King would say, "Hug it. Love it up." It's yours.
