Too many silos – all aggregating the same stuff for a slightly different group of people. I predict in 9 months one of 3 things will happen:
- An open source, de-centralized, install-on-your-own server version will be developed (think WordPress) based on OpenID.
- Everyone will abandon their accounts and move on to the next cool trend.

“For all their goodness, these ‘networks’ are silly. They are also as temporary and annoying in their competitive isolation as Compuserve, Prodigy and AOL were, back in the day (or the decade). Those things were Net-unfriendly long before their surviving members became Net-native.” – Doc Searls
