Life in the Truman Show

I can name more than a few Facebook and Twitter folk who just naturally spend all day plugging products for no obvious reason already. The funniest example of this in my mind is one particular friend who has a habit of tweeting out some love for the NBA or NFL while watching games. As in, literally, "Ready for tonight's game! Let's go NBA!" Seriously, who roots for the league? I mean, I enjoy electricity but you don't see me walking around in an Entergy jersey.

Anyway the fact that we're all being turned into virtual billboards and that most of us are happy to go along with it shouldn't surprise anyone by now.
