  1. That's a good call Jim. But I do think there is always room for a new social experience for web users.
    The fast pace, changing world of the internet opens up new possibilities on an almost daily basis.

  2. Don't wish them any ill will but frankly I think that Myspace and Facebook have dominated the market to the point where all of these startup networks are going to have trouble gaining a good base.
