Quick update on the myspace experiment initiatiated on the Kingsland Road in Shoreditch
back in May. So this started off with a bit of graffiti asking people to add their myspace name:
We got some replies almost immediately but look at it now:
Here are some money shots
myspace as a way of promoting himself as an animator which is pretty
interesting - seems its not only effective for music and bands and so
"Hi basically I wrote it up there drunk one night my mate is the www.myspace.com/FOTK one, however i see myspace as a great way to chat to mates round the world and find old mates lost in time. I supose i also use it as promotion for my website i'm an animator and have got good response through myspace, people check my site and comment about it. My sister is in an electro group called Beauty Skool Dropout and she uses myspace really effectivly for gigs, PR etc. The only thing shit about myspace is the amount of posers lying about themselves, that and the amount of time people spend blogging. posting crap about the time they spend blogging on myspace they really need to get out more.
Future thinkin say they already knew a lot of people whose name's were up on the wall - interesting cluster dynamics going on here...
"myspace is a great way to sell yourself, identify and target an audience, also found a whole shitload of positive, talented people to network with"
why you use it ?
To give people all ove he world somewher eto hear our music, also to advertise or clubnights and let people know when / where our DJ's are playing..
Staggering home from Herbal, saw the invite, noticed a few other peeps I know personally had added, thought it couldn't hurt, proceeded to deface the wall with our myspace addy!
Great Idea by the way!!

"I was casually meandering down Kingsland road on the way to my darts for beginners class and I saw the invitation to write my myspace up there. I thought to myself "any exposure is good exposure" so I decided to write it up in hope that I would claim worldwide attention as a result. And its true, it really does work. I now have a penthouse in
floridaand two chiwowa's as a result.
Thank you so much..."
Slackshot wrote his name down after playing a gig down the road...
"I'm a fan of myspace. A.Skillz bullied us into it to be honest! Since then,. we've never looked back.... ;¬)
Fantastic site for net working and getting to know the people out there. Been good to check out a lot of 'unknown' producers tracks out.
I walked past your myspace 'space' after leaving the club called Herbal after playin for a night called Rock Steady, the residency of the finger lickin duo, Drumattic Twins.
The night also gets broadcasted on the biggest breaks internet station in ze WORLD!!! www.nsbradio.co.uk

It seems myspace is getting VERY popular here in the UK right now - going to contact some of the people who wrote their name down and see what they say about it.
