Screenplay idea: Man gets amnesia and reconstructs his life from blog comments he wrote. Short film -- he kills himself after 11 minutes.

But what use is it if I can't share with my friends?

I demand a facebook app.

This sounds terrifying. I refuse to even click. Some data sets should never be sliced NOR diced.

This site would be of much greater value if it were open and collaborative in nature. Just imagine, you could look at the "traffic" a potential lover has been "hosting" to determine how risky they are. If someone were to contract a disease from someone else that person could be flagged as DNS (Do Not Shag) as a warning to others. You could check to make sure a lover has not slept with any of your friends or enemies. Now that would be a cool app!

I happen to know someone who's working on something similar to that. (And she knows that I'm mortified at the implications of the application.) Maybe she'll chime in here...

I feel like this is a corollary to Rule #34: if it can be an app, then it will be an app.

Terrifying.

Somehow two sites came up with the same idea at once: bedposted

Actually.. kevin, MyBlackBook has been around since 2004..... that other site is a knock off ...and doing a poor job at it.. all that other site is, is a calendar and "tags" .... nowhere near the same level as MyBlackBook...

We're working on an app. that is modified from an original black book concept I had about a year ago. Similar functionality, but intended to be more playful, as in: "who you made out with", instead of "fucked". One could argue the later would be of more value to the CDC.

On another note "FB" "FaceBook", "FuckBuddy" hmmm...
