This is a spoof video tutorial explaining how you can fake your own death on the Internet. If this seems a bit sick to you, then just imagine how people who get conned in this way feel.
This video starts by taking the piss out of personal blogs (such as Live Journal) where people discuss the banalities of their lives, and also forums which cater to the tiniest niches of society.
Heinstein’s law of the Internet being ‘I = H x W x C’ is a bit too close for comfort as you try being an ugly guy with no webcam and see how much attention you get! Not that I would know obviously, hohum.
This is a brilliant spoof giving you a run-down of how to fake your own death on the Internet, and while I’ve yet to experience it, I know people who have. Yes, there are some sick, attention seeking idiots out there who do such things.
