I just signed up for formspring.me, a relatively new simple, service created by FormSpring that allows you to create anonymous question boxes, such as the one below, where anyone can ask me any questions, anonymously if you choose.
You can see my answers, if I deign to provide you with a response, on my profile page: formspring.me/daveknows
Gawker calls this new service The Sociopathic Crack Cocaine of Oversharing, but I’m not sure yet whether that’s a good analogy. (But it took me two years to figure out (sorta) Twitter, so don’t take my word for anything technology zeitgeist related.)
I first witnessed formspring.me on Tim Brown’s By The Beard of Zeus blog (his formspring.me page is here), and it looks like he’s having fun with it. I may or may not do as well with it. For one thing, I don’t have a beard, which seems to be the most popular topic for Tim’s questioners.
