Full Interview: danah boyd and William Deresiewicz on friendship

This afternoon, Nora interviewed danah boyd and William Deresiewicz about the nature of friendship online -- whether social networking has changed what we mean when we say 'friend,' and how digital tools like Facebook and MySpace ask us to define, categorize, and list our friends.

A shorter version of this interview will air on Spark 104, but you can hear the full, uncut interview if you download the MP3. [runs 34:04]

Note: The Spark community asked some great questions for danah and Bill. We intended to use some of them in our interview this afternoon, but we just plumb ran out of time in our studio booking. Thanks again for the excellent, thoughful questions.
