Lauren Collins’ 21 January 2008 article, “Friend Game: Behind the Online Hoax that led to a Girl’s Suicide” seems to me as significant and timely an examination of online culture as Julian Dibbell’s widely reprinted essay “A Rape in Cyberspace” first printed in 1993 in New York’s Village Voice. I highly recommend checking it out.
