Hideous, irritating MySpace an unexpected force for good

28 Mar

An estimated 15,000 Los Angeles high school students participated in a massive protest against the immigration bill currently before Congress. Boing Boing reports that the students used MySpace to organize, according to the Los Angeles Times‘ Joel Rubin.

I wouldn’t be a bit surprised. What don’t teenagers use MySpace for? It’s funny, of course, because MySpace is owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation, which has a reputation for being slightly on the conservative side.

The Huffington Post. (I’ll grant that the L.A. freeways look like that MOST of the time, but the crowds on the overpasses are pretty impressive.)
