I am curious what people think of the recent suicide web broadcast of Abraham Biggs. Kieth Whitworth of business week wrote "For all this connectivity, the quality and depth of communication has decreased for many young people"
But is this really an accurate assessment of what is happening or simply kneejerk "blame it on the web" reaction to an unfortunate case? Aside from the fact it was broadcast on the web, did this suicide really have any relation to the web? Were people really acting different than they would have in the "real world"? Are the communications of present day kids really any more superficial than they were 40 years ago?
