RED HERRING | Friendster Wins Patent
Unless I really have had too much to drink at the London Geek Dinner (with Chris Anderson, editor or Wired and author of Long Tail etc) or this is for real. Since when were human relationships patentable? It is like trying to patent a Boy Scouts club network. I am so sure Danah Boyd could think of a much niftier analogy.

Still. Come ON!

Even more reason to emigrate to a virtual world with metaversal aspirations, such as Second Life.
