This wacky story about a 22 year old SF political hopeful making a fake video of his own decapitation got my attention again after being posted on MetaFilter. What's interesting is that the individual, Benjamin Vanderford, has a (thin) presence on the net. Including: There's a dividing line in the world now, people who have web presence vs. people who don't. And if you do you'll have one forever, there to be found with relatively little digging. It's like going to the newspaper archives to learn something about grandpa, only a thousand times easier.
