I've known some people from webmaster communities that sold some clone sites like that, there's decent money in it but you can also pay a few thousand and really get nothing as well. There are sites like you suggested though and it reminds me of something that my great-uncle did years ago. He paid a local dev group to come up with a site that would help cow breeders find matches based on some crazy number of criteria. You could do something like 10 traits for free as a trial and you paid to match more than that. He ended up selling it for somewhere in the 7 digits, this was at the start of the dot-com boom.

yeah I thought that then boom comes twitter out of nowhere.. I think that there will be some more things like that but with better options, more media embedding, etc.. I don't think that it's necessarily a BETTER idea, but I'd imagine there's work being done on stuff like that anyways

there are a lot of twitter knockoffs coming out now.. well.. they're more niche-based

Yeah I've moved way too much lately. When I first joined here I was in Lynchburg, VA... moved to Charlotte, NC last March I believe.. Detroit area in umm September maybe.. Job dried up in MI and I wanted to come back to this area (though a bit closer to DC, but oh well) and an opportunity came up. Just have to secure a decent job and I'll be set, then another move will be in store (not a lot directly around here) but it'll still be in the DC area hopefully.
