[email protected] is the World's Best Social Network


Michael J. Coren managed to make a story about a network of plant-lovers almost seductive:

The only direct communication I have with my fellow [email protected] users is the crowd-verification icon that appears after people review my photos. One such acknowledgment suggested my generic geranium observation near Golden Gate Park was actually a geranium robertianum, commonly known as Wren flower, or Death come quickly (a plant I won’t soon forget). It was a silent smile, passed between nature lovers.

I’ve long loved the idea of niche networks. That last line is brilliant.
