Are there too many social networks out there?

A video clip from G4's 'Attack of the Show' in which CNET News.com's Caroline McCarthy and Forbes' David Ewalt sound off on whether we're 'powncing' on too many social networks.

Last week, I had the honor of being a guest on G4's Attack of the Show with Forbes deputy editor David Ewalt, as host Kevin Pereira grilled us on whether we're reaching a tipping point when it comes to online social networking. I think the general answer was "yes and no"--yes, we're reaching a point where most new entries into general-interest social networking sector (hello, Pownce, Flux, and Mash) have a rather uphill climb ahead, but no, this stuff's not going to go away altogether.


P.S.: Do I look like I'm twitching on camera? The Javits Center will do that to you.
