So, this guy samy hacked MySpace.com with a rather simple Ajax script, wasn’t aware of the exponential rate at which his worm grew, and pulled the plug. It’s a rather funny story to read, and the interview he gave to Google Blogoscoped is pretty funny too. What no-one pointed out so far is how crappy MySpace.com must have been programmed that something like this could have happened…
Well, though samy is not my hero, he nevertheless made me register with MySpace.com. This is the third social network I’m subscribed to (still waiting for an invite to Orkut), and they are all but similar to each other. If I find the time I will do a short comparison.
So far, MySpace.com seems to be the most fun, OpenBC was the most useful for business, and LinkedIn is the most boring and complicated one.
