Brenda sent me a link to this article from the WRAL web site in Raleigh. It made me chuckle. It made me ask, “Why didn’t I think of that!” It made me ask, “Woe! We have way to much time on our hands.”
Cici confesses on her Web page that she likes to greet everyone by licking their feet.
Dolce admits to being a mamma’s boy. And Jake and Tycho posted a video that chronicles their adventures of rolling around on their backs. It’s not on Facebook or MySpace, but the canine equivalent – Doggyspace.com.

Then that last sentence struck me, “..trend of niche, or content-focused, social networking sites that target interest groups looking to connect with like-minded people.” Isn’t that what mailing lists were doing 25 years ago? What’s the difference? What’s new? Well, certainly, there is a lot that is new. But it’s still people going into containers, where they have access only to people of like minds.
I continue to think that we’re missing something here. What’s so valuable about my social network is that I connect to people through their ideas and through their reactions to my ideas (positive and negative).
More to come!
