Friendster is beginning to impact real-life socializing in intriguing ways. "It's interesting that now, when I go out to social gatherings, it seems as if just about everyone is on Friendster," says James Meetze, a publisher from Oakland, California. "The other night I was at an art opening when a girl approached me and said, 'I've seen you on the Internet.' I made the connection that she had recently sent me a message on Friendster about liking to eat kittens. I said, 'Oh, right, you're the kitten eater, please stay away from my kittens.' "

What I learned here is that Friendster is for the kind of people who say "impact" instead of "affect." No wonder I deleted my account.

Then I guess it was pretty impactful.

Friendster confuses and frightens me. I don't -care- if you know someone who knows someone who knows someone I know.

I'm interested in making new friends, sure but slapping my name up on another website just so I can have four digits worth of people who don't know me classified as friends is just screwy.

P.S. Kittens taste like puppies
