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...
