If you thought Randall Stross' attack on Tesla yesterday was in poor taste, wait until you read what Michael Wolff has to sayabout MySpace. In a dinner interview with BusinessWeek columnist Jon Fine, Wolff says:
…if you're on MySpace now, you're a [expletive] cretin. And you're not only a [expletive] cretin, but you're poor. Nobody who has beyond an 8th grade level of education is on MySpace. It is for backwards people.
That's just part of a much longer interview in which Wolff goes into detail on exactly why he thinks MySpace will go the way of AOL. He also makes some blatantly incorrect statements, such as "All of the growth now in MySpace is international," which is incorrect. In the last year MySpace has grown about 10% in the U.S., adding 7.5 million monthly unique users to a total of 76.4 million. Non-U.S. users have grown from 45 million to 54 million, a 17% increase.
