Penn State Boinged by Blog
In the last week, two Penn State people have been mentioned on Boing-Boing, one of the most popular blogs on the Internet.
The first was Dean Christian Brady of the Schreyer Honors College. He was included in an excerpt of a Twitter-sourced interview danah boyd did about how teens use the internet.
@shcdean: What future do they see for FB or Twitter.
They don’t use Twitter. When asked, teens always say that they’ll use their preferred social network site (or social media service) FOREVER as a sign of their passion for it now. If they expect that they’ll “grow out of it”, it’s a sign that the service is waning among that group at this very moment. So they’re not a good predictor of their own future usage.
The second person mentioned was editor-in-chief emeritus of The Daily Collegian, Terry Casey. The Boing-Boing post quoted a Chronicle of Higher Education article about Casey’s denial of a request from a former columnist to take down some content she had written.
