    Default Tired of those same old social networks?

    I was just enjoying a bit of Wired magazine in between tedious work-related tasks, and I laughed out loud at this short feature about non-MySpace/Facebook social networks. Here are some highlights:

    Trek Passions (trekpassions.com)
    What it is: Sci-fi personals for Star Trek fans
    Who you'll meet: Men; sad, lonely men
    What's Annoying: Overzealous warriors of the Klingon Empire. Losers still debating Kirk vs. Picard.

    Beautiful People (us.beautifulpeople.net)
    What it is: A network you have to be voted into based on your appearance
    Who you'll meet: Narcissists, liars
    What's annoying: "Looks matter," as the saying goes, but not, apparently, when it comes to Web design.

    Stop Cyberbullying (stopcyberbullying.ning.com)
    What it is: A safe place for frank discussions on the topic of Internet bullying
    Who you'll meet: Pussies
    What's annoying: Dare to call them pussies, and they'll gang up on you mercilessly.

    The Richard Dawkins Social Network (richarddawkins.net/social)
    What it is A place for fans of The God Delusion's author to meet and greet
    Who you'll meet Humorless atheists
    What's annoying Don't these people realize that the earth is only 6,000 years old?
    Lol I wouldn't call them humourless, I find some of them shockingly hilarious.

    I must check out that star trek one though.

    Oh, that was rich.

    And did you see the first comment?

    I'm an educator working to teach high school students responsible, ethical use of online resources. Honan's snark and the resulting attack at Cyberbullying was misinformed. My WIRED subscription is cancelled.
    And the OTHER four comments are all ganging up on Honan as well about cyberbullying.

    Which sort of just proves the entire point of Honan's jibe...? Sigh.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    HA! I hadn't read the comments when I posted this, but that is pretty great.
