Tribe.net Follow-Up

Marc Canter has posted an interesting follow-up to several recent stories about the new social networking service Tribe.net. (He doesn’t mention my piece, but the ones he does cite all observe basically the same thing I did — that there’s way too many similar services out already.) One important point he makes does clarify an issue that was wrong in my earlier piece — I cited Friendster as Tribe.net’s main inspiration, but Marc correctly points out that the original service in this space was not Friendster, but Ryze. Sorry about that.

Obligatory Disclaimer

If you think anything I write here represents the opinions of anybody but myself, you need more help than I can give you. The opinions are all mine, folks. Nobody else's. ESPECIALLY not my employer's.

If that's too hard to understand... well, I'm sorry. There's only so much I can do. I'm not a therapist, and I'm not a miracle worker. (Unless you consider staying employed in this economy a miracle.) I wish I could help you work through your delusional belief that I'm speaking for anyone else but myself. Honestly, I do. But in the end, that's a monkey you'll have to get off your back on your own. Sorry.
