So I guess Friendster is taking off. It’s a little disheartening to see people making money (well, they’re not making money yet) with a service you know you could have built in yourself 2 weeks’ time. I distinctly remember a site called Sixdegrees that was similar back in college. After a while, it got boring and people stopped looking at it though. Sixdegrees also had more sophisticated relationship classifications so you could define “mother” or “boyfriend” instead of everyone as a friend. It will be interesting to see how this one plays out, but if you sign up feel free to invite me to be your friend so I can look incredibly popular (in cyberspace).
