Apparently People Aggregator is alive. I know this because a few co-workers said that their inboxes are staring to fill with email invites of some sort related to it. The warned me to be on the lookout.
Oh, great. Another piece of social software that allows anyone to spam their friends via e-mail.
Isn't there a better (and by "better" I mean "less annoying") way?
Maybe what we need is an opt-out list that's like the National Do Not Call Registry.
In order to be called a "social" or "web 2.0" company, you need to agree to run a daily import of the opt-out 2.0 database and apply it to your system.
The penalty for non-compliance? You don't get free PR in TechCrunch.
That's my idea for the day. I offer it up royalty free to anyone who wants to make a difference in the inboxes of potentially thousands of annoyed "early adopter" types.
