Yahoo! 360 and Already a Great Parody

I posted about this the other day in one of the "whoa look at Yahoo now" posts: Yahoo! 360, their community posting beta (which I haven't see the inside of yet). Look at that page, and then go look at this parody site immediately afterwards:

SixFoo!660: "Finally, a way for social networks to stay connected to other social networks, and meet interesting social networks like yourself."

Share what matters to you. Create yet another place online. Share pictures of your cat. Create a blather. Make the same lists of crap you made somewhere else last week, send out a BLAMMO, crush on an indie chick and abandon it all after only 12 days.
Keep your social networks close. Invite social apps to your place to see what works about their service. They can steal ideas from your service. Tag each other silly until you can't feel your toes. It's a great way to feel like something new and important might be happening before the bubble bursts again in early 2007.
Click on the sign in link to see their UI... it's very nicely meta. (Thanks to Ka-Ping Yee for pointing it out to me today in our CHI conference workshop about subjects much like this.)
