Social software from a kit of parts
Marc Andreessen (of Netscape fame) is always up to some thing. His latest feat is a site called Ning . Ning is a sort of roll-your-own social software development site, or playground as Andreessen calls it. You can create a new social application, a la Friendster and the like, by duplicating an example application and hacking to your hearts content. Folks have already created local restaurant rating sites, social mapping sites... you name it.
