The Lonelygirl That Really Wasn’t – New York Times

The Lonelygirl That Really Wasn’t
story in the New York Times identifies the real LonelyGirl15 – 20-something Jessica, a film school grad. (Update: Check out this montage on YouTube of Jessica snaps).

But maybe the drama, mystery – the narrative – is still going on? Who’s to say all this “being discovered” is not part of the on-going plot?! hehe.

Anyway, it says something interesting about the way we handle and probe notions of “authenticity” in a digital age and the tools that we can collectively use to hold people to account.
