nice little rant over on BoingBoing:
Is there a word for that post-Friendster/Tribe/LinkedIn/SixDegrees
oh-god-not-again feeling I'm getting as I read the launch
announcement? Like, HTML rug burn? I mean, really --
I haven't played around with eurekster yet, and I mean no disrespect
to whoever built the project. But if one more website asks me to
"invite all of my friends," I swear I'm gonna fucking throw up. Invite
your own damn friends, you website.
I guess it's a big copycat game right now.
