Web 2.0 Cataclysm: Scoble Abandons Facebook

Robert Scoble, Facebook minister-without-portfolio, is abandoning Facebook after his account was suspended for some amateurish data scraping attempts. I say “amateurish” only because he was caught — I have no idea what technology he was using to scan the Facebook site for data.

The wag would suggest that he needed more than 4,999 friends to feel socially accepted, but I doubt that. I think it’s more about how he wants 4,999 friends on 12 different social networks!

But seriously, this is a good point to take a stand on. If the time you’ve invested in creating your network isn’t recoverable should you want to move systems, why should you invest the time to begin with? Why not go with something more open (as in borders, not source code) and portable?
