Everyone always says the "MySpace Generation" has no attention span, but this is ridiculous: MySpace just launched the Minisode Network, which hosts cut-down versions of "Silver Spoons," "The Facts of Life," "Ricki Lake" and more. By the end of the year, MySpace plans to have 500 of the three- to five-minute minisodes available.
Which is nice, I guess, if you want to watch an episode of "Charlie's Angels" in five minutes, but ... why would you want to do that? Especially considering that content from a lot of these shows — including full episodes — is available on YouTube and other sources already?
I suppose eventually, if MySpace puts up enough minisodes, you could speed through an entire season of "Diff'rent Strokes" on your lunch break or watch the complete "Partridge Family" some Sunday afternoon. But for now, I'm not sure that snippets of classic comedies are enough to keep me using the Minisode Network — even if I could put the "Silver Spoons" pilot on my MySpace page. What do you think? Can you think of a good use for the Minisode Network?
