Now meet the force behind this critically-acclaimed book. Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Julia Angwin chronicles the rise of MySpace.com, detailing how the site took the Internet by storm by grabbing the hottest ideas from around the Web, encouraging pinup stars like Tila Tequila to make their home on its pages and giving everyone freedom to experiment with online identities – including using someone else’s identity. Julia, who’s currently a Wall Street Journal reporter, joins host, and BlogTalkRadio CEO, Alan Levy for a live, in-depth discussion on social media – and what we can all learn from MySpace’s recent unseating as America’s most popular porthole.
