I'm starting to form a theory of why sites like Last.fm, and Dogster are such great ideas. It has to do with the fact that there are plenty of people who really want to connect socially to others obliquely through a shared interest rather than straight up. It narrows the beam a bit but there's still such great variety in the selection of "people who like dogs" or "people who also like these seven bands" that you're bound to connect with a few different but interesting-to-you people. More thinking needs to be done here but I like what I'm hearing. In my head.
