I couldn’t help noticing the paragraph in the r/w/w piece I blogged about earlier today that spoke directly to me (actually, about me )
… early adopters are the first to sign up and create profiles on every service that launches … sometimes they’re not so great after all, and they end up fading away into nothingness … [but] these failures don’t seem to dampen our enthusiasm … if they’re the next big thing (or so everyone says), we’re supposed to jump on board and use them [empasis added]
Nearly dead-on. The author just forgot to mention that early-adopters are also masochistic self-loathing obsessive compulsives who would toss their grandmother under a bus for the chance to try every insipid new social-networking service 24 hours before their peers rather than spend a moment engaged in actual social interaction.
But other than that, good job. Really well done.
