In his ongoing critique of the Bryant Park Blog and Twitter feed, Lee Siegel offers a true confession: He has no idea what High School Musical is. And the wonderful thing is that he's cool with that.

Siegel's the author of Against the Machine: Being Human in the Age of the Electronic Mob, a little book worthy of a big stir.

Today, Siegel's on about the cult of popularity. I've also seen him Tweeting on our Twitter feed this morning. Earlier in the week, we went around with Siegel about our Chekhovian potatoes and a cupcakes post that served as an island refuge.
