The internet is sort of getting exciting again (and simultaneously scary, of course). I don't feel like linking today but it's not like anybody really needs links anymore do they? Yahoo 360 sort of sucks but it gets us all thinking about the nature of why things suck, which inevitably leads to a better understanding of how to build non-sucky things. Then again, I'm also willing to give them some benefit of the doubt and say that if their goals are different than mine (for example, if they want a lot of users and want to consolidate otherwise disconnected Yahoo features into one big conglomerate... both noble goals from some perspectives) then they're probably going to do a good job succeeding at those goals. And despite it all I'm still having fun playing around with things over there. My blast is collecting dust. Then there's EVDB, Jobster, and many more coming soon. It's exciting. We live in a tiny world where I think the only things worth doing are the things which make the future and the web and the people connect in fantastic new ways. But a lot of these ways seem to be slowly turning the corner.
