Will you be my friend? Trying to tease something out of the void that the social networking sites have become. So far it seems that the folks at Flickr are the only ones who have a clue. The rest of them – Tribe, LinkedIn, Friendster, Orkut – seem to have a classic case of high-ego startup syndrome, suggesting that they actually believe they’re smarter than everyone else and can actually do it all themselves with limited if any interoperability. I hope to be proven wrong.
