Hi everybody on the list !
Sorry about the off-topic message, but giving the nature of the
message and the nature of the list (after all, everybody here uses
Internet or develops for web in some way), I decided to post this here
and see what you guys think about it.
My gut feeling is that you are being taken by some fairly amateurish
viral marketing, and that you've played into it by uncritically
regurgitating the message onto these mailing lists.
Googling "Dylan Pattyn" yields only
references to this very video and a site for a performance
art/activist group called IPower, which boasts such "projects" as "an
suicide-awareness campaign disguised as a personal suicide blog", a
self-described "online stunt" called "40,000 Blowjobs", and a "wacky
online reality series".
Really, do you honestly think that Time Magazine would use a
twenty-something freelancer, who has never published anything in any
major periodical, to break a news article that would at the least
create a decade or more of anti-trust lawsuits?
