A Web 2.0 Valentine

My Web 2.0 darling,

I really digg you. When I wink at you, it’s not just a Social Signal; I’m trying to tell you that you're the Apple of my eye.

I used to dabble db in love; I’d StumbleUpon something and call it love, but now I know love indeed. Whenever we meetup, I go all Google-eyed. You hit me like a Bolt of lightning, and took me to QLOUD nine. From my standpoint you’re a Supernova; you made my heart Rupture and now I’d Change Everything in a snap if you asked.

But why change when iLike 43 Things AboutUs: how you yelp with gusto!; how every moment is eventful; how we’re turNing into a tribe of two; how you fill myspace with happiness; how we’re Linkedin to each other in the most meaningful ways. It seems that with every passingSecond Life becomes bryghter.

NowPublic displays of affection hold no fear for me. Say you'll be mine foRevver, and we'll be Consumating before you know it.

I could continue these riffs but all you need to know is that my love for you will never flickr; in fact every del.icio.us upcoming moment makes me want to yell Yahoo!

With love, Your Valentine

Anonymous: Logos are not copyrightable. They are trademarked. And this would most likely be defensible as fair use, were any companies actually willing to sue someone who gave them free advertising.

Torley and Geoff, thanks so much for the kind words! And I'm delighted to hear it made the rounds at Linden Lab.

Anonymous, you can rest easy: this falls squarely in the territory of fair use (or fair dealing, as we call it here in the frozen wastelands of Vancouver).

This is incredibly cute and ingenious! How long did it take you to make this? My esteemed colleague Jeska shared it 'round Linden Lab. Thanx for including Second Life!
