Every frickin’ band on the planet

“We decided what MySpace would become.”

Let’s be clear. We decided what MySpace would become. They set up a social networking platform, but what we as users decided to use it for is as a music platform. Were it not for issues of timing and some core functionality that nobody else was offering right up front, it would probably have been dead by now, because they still haven’t realised that very simple fact.

And we put up with its broken interface, bad design, 90s technology, ad-riddled BS, and complete lack of comprehension about what MySpace is really for - for one reason alone: nobody else has EVERY FRICKIN’ BAND ON THE PLANET.

Andrew Dubber declares the 24th October 2010 to be global ‘Quit MySpace’ Day.
