A friend called me this morning saying that he got an e-mail message from someone he knew, but that message was apparently sent on his behalf by Plaxo. This friend was wondering what I knew about Plaxo, and whether he should respond to the message, which was asking him for all sorts of information he didn’t feel comfortable sending. Since I hadn’t heard of Plaxo before, I did a little research. Deane even has a post on it.
And the more I looked into it, the less I liked the whole concept.
