Silicon Valley Watcher - Former FT journalist Tom Foremski reporting from the intersection of technology and media

Don't mention LonelyGirl15 . . .

Posted by Tom Foremski - September 15, 2006

My son Matt is exhausted from telling the story of LonelyGirl15 to the media so many times.

He did well, I'm not sure I could have handled that kind of attention at 18 years old. Right now, he doesn't want to to talk to anybody about anything LG15 related. He just wants to go away somewhere and be anonymous.

Matt bore the brunt of these interviews, nearly three days of talking about the LG15 media story. I always find it strange to be interviewed by the media while being in the media.

But I love talking about the media, to the media, while being a part of the media--and writing about the media. It is an Alice-in-Wonderland-inside-out feeling at times, but one that is part of this changing media landscape.

This front page New York Times article on Tuesday sparked enormous worldwide interest:
