Kevin Ashton worked some internet Necromancy to create Santiago Swallow. Generated names, photoshopped face, Twitter followers, etc. All for no one.
So a few questions for you:
- How many other people have done this – and how many did it for themselves versus fake people?
- How much can we actually trust a lot of what covers “fame” on the Internet?
- How do we cut through the B.S. for ourselves?
