A Slow Digital Death

It seems like just yesterday we were reporting every other day that MySpace would corrupt your children, make you do evil things, and quite possibly could cause cancer.

Five years ago, Rupert Murdoch’s Newscorp bought red hot MySpace for 580-million dollars.  On Wednesday, Newscorp unloaded this digital dog for 35-million.

Hmmm. 

We’re so over MySpace, and now we’re all over Twitter and Facebook. 

But on Tuesday, Twitter co-founder Biz Stone announced he’s moving on.  And does anyone really believe Facebook is the be-all end-all?

Based on recent digital history (and it’s all recent), it shouldn’t take long to find out.
