"an interview with a young manhattanite who has resigned his friendster membership for reasons known only to him"

Q. How many people were in your network?

A. Just north of 200K.

Q. Wow, that's a lot of people. So how is a stranger six times removed from you in your Friendster network different from some skell you'd meet at a bar in Brooklyn?

A. You just pulled the nail from my head. There is no difference and that’s one of these reasons I became disillusioned with the concept. But really, walking up to strangers on the street and awkwardly introducing yourself is the new Friendster. Haven’t you heard?
