    Stalking Emma Watson

    By kyle | October 1, 2009

    Harmless fanboy tweeting or scary stalking? You make the call about what happened when Brown student Emma “Hermione” Watson went to Harvard to watch a football game. Certainly, if you happen to be a stalker, technology has down all your dirty work for you. On the other hand, do we really want to prevent kids from sending each other texts and tweets that deal with the locations of celebrities? When I was at Yale, I remember it was spectacularly uncool to take too much notice of the celebrities among us (who included Jennifer Beals, who was a year ahead of me, and, later, one of the girls from a then-popular TV sitcom called “Kate and Allie.”) I guess that’s changed.

      The Voice’s response:

      There seems to be much ado about nothing over this photo and liveblog. Understand that these live tweets were made to be intentionally outrageous and overblown.

      A perfect example of self-serving juvenile arrogance. You couldn’t invent a better.

      I thought Harvard students were supposed to be smart? I guess some of them clearly are NOT. But anyways…I have a feeling the media is making a bigger deal about it than it really was. Emma is strong and she’s been famous since she was 10 so I’m sure this isn’t the first time something like this has happened.

      Even though legislation of competition could be sometimes hard for that individual, it is best for your race, given it ensures the survival of the fittest in every department.
