The Cloud Gets Creepy

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.

Check out Cloud Girlfriend (I won’t tell anyone)
