Enter "The Coop", a Mozilla Labs project to experiment with adding social tools to the web browser. We want to create a fun and easy way to share links with your friends, and to browse the set of links that friends have shared with you. We also want to make it easy to "subscribe" to a friend in order to make it easy to keep track of the pictures, movies, blog posts and status information that they might be posting on a variety of services.

As if information overflow wasn't enough already in everyday life. Now people (well, some I guess) will try to squeeze in some 1984-time at lunch break or after dinner.
Don't we meet at the pubs or in the parks to exchange our life's, hopes, experience and feelings anymore. Does it all have to be 1's and 0's designed to make anyone else believe we are somewhat better or different than mother nature (and our character trades and way of life) made us?
I do love the web for it's efficiency and helpfulness as a resource and tool. But folks: second and third life's?
OK, as said, there will be demand and the requestors will steer developments if economy of scale is a factor. Me though: scaling out of that proposal.
