Spatula of Death
May 3, 2007 12:35 PM   Subscribe

Instead of yet another social networking site, why not try an anti-social networking site? Presenting Spatula of Death, where the goal is enmity, not community. Smite your friends enemies or watch other people smite theirs, and you'll get to watch a poor stuffed monkey get whapped on the head with a spatula over a live web feed. Rate other users' smites, and have your own smites rated, earning Douchebag Points (TM) for the most cutting remarks and cruel behavior. The site was created as a thesis presentation for Tisch ITP at NYU; watch the creator discuss it.

I've been watching the ITP presentations this week... You can watch the live stream here. There are about 25 presentations a day, running through Friday evening.

*Lots* of interesting projects by graduating students from NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program.. great brainfood for your inner art-nerd!

Had I wanted anti-social networking where the goal is enmity, I would have stayed married.

Doesn't this make MetaFilter obsolete?
