slowerre: Do you think people will eventually get overwhelmed trying to keep up all their social networking sites ... if they blog, have MySpace, Facebook, and LinkedIn profiles and use Twitter that could get to be a lot don't you think?

Curt_Monash: Oh, sure. These things come and go. What's more, you left out the biggie -- forums. One can be members of LOTS of different communities. I've left many, many communities. But they've also been very important to me. I met my wife on a Prodigy forum. That was over 15 years ago. As far as profiles being spread out all over -- it's ridiculous, and it's a long way away from being fixed.
