With Friends Like These…
Back in the ancient days of, oh, January of this year, friends Jonathan Abrams, Mark Pincus, and Reid Hoffman met to carve up the social networking space. Like Roosevelt, Stalin, and Churchill, they agreed upon spheres of influence: Friendster for dating, Tribe for classifieds, and LinkedIn for business networking.
Just like the original Yalta conference, that agreement seems to be crumbling.
Does that make Jonathan Stalin or Roosevelt?
