Any honest internet historian will tell you that if not for pornography and sexually-charged chatrooms, none of the earliest web companies would’ve survived. Lonely men drove the only revenue the internet had at the very beginning, AOL was a de facto digital nudie mag.
So it should come as no surprise then that this grand tradition is carrying on into the next stage of the web’s evolution – Cloud Computing. Enter new service Cloud Girlfriend.
In many ways this is brilliant. The much-coveted Sad Bastard demographic is a large and growing one. Don’t take my word for it, scan the crowd at any Rush concert and you’ll see tens of thousands of potential customers for a service that invents a cloud-based girlfriend to keep them company.
My only surprise here is that this hasn’t happened sooner.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to spend an hour working on something completely unrelated to this post.
