Recently, there has been a huge backlash against people, particularly women who chronicle their lives on the Internet. But the most interesting thing about this is this particular phenomenon has been going on for over a decade, primarily amongst teenage girls. In this panel, we will talk with some of the old school "bloggers" about coming of age baring it all on the Internet before everyone turned it into a punchline. We'll talk about why we did it, whether or not we still do it and how it has affected the way we lead our lives. We'll also touch upon what this means for the generation coming up, where sharing every minute detail has become the norm.
