Anti-Social Software

Well, another tell-tale sign of a bubble is a proliferation of ironic/sarcastic piss-takes, and here's one which gave us a wry smile here : Isolatr.

How Web 2.0 is this?

Well, let's see:

Rounded Corners - check
Gradient Fills - check
Big Dorky Font - check
An Artfully-Removed "e" - check
In Beta - check
Obviously Screams "Yahoo! or Google Buy Me Buy Me Buy Me PLEEEEEEASE...." - hmmm, it's already been bought by Yahoo!, so I'm not sure about that..... does that mean it's no longer cool and edgy and underground, and has in fact turned into an obvious sell-out and corporate whore? Or is it a poster-child for the Web 2.0 revolution? Discuss....
