Famous for 15 minutes?

If in the future, as Andy Warhol famously said ' everyone, will be famous for fifteen minutes', wouldn't this be microcelebrity? I mean my review of this book has just been published in English in Education (39:1), so would that count. No? O.K. then, it must apply to Jason Kottke because it's here. And here's his blog - now a full time affair. But wouldn't it be better to apply the term microcelebrity to someone who'€™s satus shrank to almost nothing before your very eyes? I'd nominate Bill Murray and Cate Blanchett for demeaning themselves in that execrable waste of screen time/money The Life Aquatic - the worst film I think I've ever seen. (BTW there's a really good Spanish film at the Showroom!)
