Serendipity That's Lost

26 January 2004 12:14

Anil Dash laments on how the directness of contemporary communication (i.e. mobile, email, IM, etc.) has caused adecline in possible exciting chance encounters these days. Perhaps true to a certain extent, but as once said by Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) in Jurassic Park: “Life will find its way”. As it is, there have already been quite a number of those "social networking" services available out there such as Friendster, There, community based websites or even weblogs for that matter. Even Google is also getting on the social networking scene with Orkut.com. So the avenue for chance encounters has somewhat found its way onto the Internet already, catering the needs of the possible masses on the medium. Then again, call me old fashioned, but I reckon nothing beats getting a whiff of pheromones from the opposite sex in real life encounters and start gettinghorny busy coming up with a sexy pick-up line. How's that for chancing it?
