Blackbird was aborted before release. WAP-based phone carrier enclaves died
a slow, flaming death. Even P2P networks took over the more closed Kazaas of
While there are profitable closed and, in this case, very opaque services
like Google AdSense, generally speaking walled gardens peter out. So I read
the latest on "social graph" land grabbing with historical amusement.
If it didn't, you'd be out of a job.
