The Microfame Game by Rex Sorgatz

Rex Sorgatz, the author of the annoyingly prolific blog, “Fimoculous,” has a compelling article in New York Magazine called, “The Microfame Game.” It’s about the microcelebrity phenomenon and the emerging science of cultivating microfame. It’s quite good. Here’s an excerpt from the article:

“Where traditional fame was steeped in class envy on the part of the audience and alienation on the part of the celebrity, microfame closes the gap between devotee and celebrity. It feels like a step toward equality.”

OK. Create –> Overshare –> Respond. Rinse. Repeat. Got it. Thanks.
