Fitting graffiti outside Harvard's ID Mashup event?

Summary: As I carted my technology (computer, podcasting gear, and digital camera) on a wheelie (to save my back) from the public parking in Cambridge, down Massachusetts Ave. to the Identity Mashup Conference at Harvard's Law School where the content is all about such issues as identity, trust, who are you?

As I carted my technology (computer, podcasting gear, and digital camera) on a wheelie (to save my back) from the public parking in Cambridge, down Massachusetts Ave. to the Identity Mashup Conference at Harvard's Law School where the content is all about such issues as identity, trust, who are you? (are you an imposter or the person you say you are), and where our identities should reside, I passed this vine-lined door.  All it really needed was an arrow to the left pointing to the conference location where this message could have been parsed, analyzed, and projected into the future. Given the way Myspace is used to not only express identity, but to send social signals, the site has come up numerous times in conversation.

    I love it; I have been using MySpace for years now because sadly, many of my friends use it as their primary (sometimes only) way of communicating outside of the phone & face-to-face.

    Why do the Web 2.0 and AJAX crod call it an example of those things? MySpace itself is not AJAXed, except for a few small features (like the Top 8) and in terms of Web 2.0 stuff, it is a complete and utter walled garden (filled with poisonous plants), where data cannot escape, not even email! The fact that many of the bloggers on ZDNet as well as other "experts" think that MySpace is some shining example of whatever just shows why they have so little credibility.

    Sorry for the rant, but "MySpace" is a nasty trigger for me, why next to "Google [Whatever]: the next Microsoft [whatever] Killer?"
