Plaxo is for sale, I shoulda known better!

When i first heard about Plaxo and the whole "Global Address book" hoo ha, I didn’t sign up. When a few friends and colleagues signed up and invited me, I passed. Why? I was waiting to see where they’d go. Finally just a few days ago, I got another invite. "Ok, it’s been a year or so. they’re still around, more people are using them, i’ll sign up."

An always up to date address book is definitely a nice thing, when I think about my Blackberry, my Mac, Google, etc all being their own (more or less) little silo’s. But now…?

No sooner have I mined my Gmail address book, my LinkedIn account, etc, than i see that TechCrunch is reporting, they’re up for sale.

Great, just great.

    Uhhhhh ya….. thank you to all you jerks that invited me to this Plaxo nonsense! I’m always weary when I get an invite to some social networking site. I get enough spam as it is. But I got so many Plaxo’s that it sounded like it was the in thing.

    Just stick to LinkedIn people….!!!
