Plaxo acquired by Comcast

I was about to bitch about Plaxo being bought by Comcast (and therefor creating an opportunity in the market)... but twitter was down!

I feel like I am slumming by blogging this, when for me this would be better off as twitter blather.

Twitter is giving me deja-vu memories of Friendster.

How did Friendster solve their problems?

They latched on their graph engine to the internals of MySQL, and pushed joins into the database.

Anybody up for writing a quick queue engine? I bet you can figure out which website really needs one about now...

Have they even been public about why the service keeps sucking? I highly doubt starling is the big issue.

No :)

What I have heard through parties (though none that have worked there) is that they can't handle their message queue.

At web 2.0 they gave numbers that made it sound like their message traffic was pretty trivial...
