Murdoch Foresight?

Every time I log in, MySpace reminds me more and more of US broadcast TV.  It’s loud, lacks a consistent aesthetic, and as Nick Carr, inspired by Ivor Tossell, says, it’s mirroring the US society.

The need for self-expression is evident.  Just look at the number of ring-tone downloads, at $2+ (more expensive than full track songs) a pop.  What may help is a bit editorial help. Have we seen professional services for designing people’s MySpace pages?  We let designers into our living rooms, why not our online spaces?

If this is already happening, I bet it’s happening at CyWorld.
