I’m thinking about a new artistic project. It’s in the fetal stages, so I’m not going to unveil it for a while (if ever). However, in thinking about this project, I need to imagine what MySpace looks like in 2010.
Now, of course, it’s unlikely that MySpace will be what all the cool kids are talking about in 4 years, but you get the idea. Let’s call it MySpace2010.com (currently available, by the way). It’s the most popular social network of its day. How is it different from MySpace in 2006?
Here are a couple of ideas to get started:
- It’s less about a website, but more about a presence which stretches across a bunch of different devices, including computers, mobile devices, music players and so forth.
- Increasingly, MySpace2010 is about video, not text.
I should reiterate that this is an artistic project which, were it gloriously successful, wouldn’t net me much cash. So, I’m not asking you smart people so I can go build MySpace2010.com and net $1.65 billion in Google stock.
Today’s thought experiment: What does MySpace2010 look like to you? Are we still adding random strangers as ‘friends’? Are there any solutions to the stalker problem? What haven’t we even dreamed of?
UPDATE: I asked, uh, Ask Metafilter as well.
