The Times has an interesting article on Myspace today, focusing on what happens when someone with a Myspace page dies. For all the discussion we hear on a daily basis of how the internet breeds online communities, there's usually very little discussion of the roll it plays, or should play, in the grieving process. There are some really interesting quotes in the Times piece from people that find it too hard to deal with the attention it brings, while other people find the outpouring of emphathy comforting. Interesting stuff to think about.
