Wired News: Antisocial Networking Gets Hip

Wired News: Antisocial Networking Gets Hip: "Software engineer Bryant Choung intended to satirize social discovery services when he launched his beta site, Snubster, last month. The site lets members create public lists of people and things that rankle them.
'The whole concept of online social networking was really starting to irk me,' said Choung, who initially envisioned Snubster as a way to stem the often irritating flow of invitations to join networking sites like Friendster and LinkedIn. While such sites seemed like a good idea at first, their usage too often devolves into 'an attempt to get as many fake friends as possible.'"
