I have nothing intelligent to say about this yet, but I will go read that article.

"YouTube routines notwithstanding, most people do not begin to see themselves in the midst of a tale with a beginning, middle and eventual end until they are teenagers."

I wonder if things like Facebook or MySpace will eventually change this -- or if they already have to some degree -- as younger and younger children do things like post photos into albums (stories), create an online profile, engage in online games, get the chance to tell people who they are through new mediums. If you begin structuring your life for others as a narrative earlier, maybe you'll begin thinking of it that way earlier too.


I'm so bringing this article to my shrink. She will love it.
