Weird Kid #01


ON SALE NOW! at IndyPlanet

I Drank the Kool-Aid

I know the big wave is over, and that all of the cool kids already joined the cult of Friendster ages ago, but I kept resisting. I think that the reason I finally caved was curiosity. If the whole Friendster thing goes ballistic and dissapears in three months, I don’t want to be the only one who didn’t get to play. I’d hate to be the only person who didn’t know that Friendster had “Open Marriage” listed as a status option…

When I first logged on, Friendster informed me that I had 1341 people in my Personal Network, through 1 friend. 1341?? My understanding of the process here was that, by identifying friends of your friends (or possibly friends of your friends’ friends), you could meet people that were cool – that had been vouched for. I love my friend Melt, but if she’s vouching for 1341 people, I have to question her review process.

Still, it was all worth it when I saw the message in my inbox:
leslie is now your friend!

I don’t know what I would have done if I got a message telling me that she thought I had cooties.

Hm. I wonder if the “Suggest a Match” confirmation says

If it doesn’t, it should.
