  1. One or two of the companies might work – I think of VisiblePath and Spoke as examples of that, and probably one of the consumer-oriented networks. What I can’t believe is the rumor that Friendster had an opportunity to be bought by Google and turned it down. They will probably regret that if it’s true…

  2. well it is true that friendster had a chance to be sold, but hubris. i think it is only a matter of time before this bubble really blows. what can one say. i am still not sold on this business model as yet

  3. What business model? It’s a dressed up game of Magic the gathering for ego crazed dot-com-ers who are bored with a simplicity of a palm pilot -hyped by programmers who want it to be their cash cow so they can escape their mega-corp cubicle programming job and make up for missing the boat in ’99.

    I can’t for the life of me see this as anything other than an social web-novelty. Perhaps I lack vision. 🙂

  4. You and me both Karl, vision is such a tricky thing – only a few hundred folks in the valley have it, and some of them happen to be guys in the VC business playing with other people’s money
