Looks as if "She's a Flight Risk" is the hottest blog in the community now. After a Wired news article, everyone's buzzing about whether it's real or not.
It's about a pampered European heiress who flees with her trust fund cash after her Godfather-like dad arranges a marriage for her. Now she's on the lam -- a rogue blogger.
I read some of it and find it semi-fascinating -- a good read and interesting to think about, but sometimes a little long in the tooth for fiction. Certainly excusable if it's fact, though. I do agree that it's a brilliant ploy if it's simply a hoax by an aspiring author to get a book deal. I'd even think it's cool as an unorthodox advertising campaign to build buzz about a movie, like the A.I. Web game. That was brilliant.
