    It seems to me that the problem with Path is that it’s going to be very difficult to figure out who you really want to connect up with in this new, more personal way. Path seems to be about creating a more honest, more “true” diary of your real life. The “real you,” if you will, captured forever online and to be shared with your closest friends and family. Ok, but how many people are you ready to be *that* open with? I surmise that as your Path connections grow, the fidelity of your posts – their proximity to who you, in the quiet moments of your soul, would say you really are – will diminish. You’ll be gaming your posts depending on who you’ve decided to share them with. That’s all fine, and i suppose it serves some purpose and fills some gap between Facebook and your diary (if you keep one), but people may ultimately decide they really only have the bandwidth to manage one false identity online (and no, i don’t think sites like LinkedIn are comparable to what Facebook and now Path demand of their users).

    I don’t know. I’m not getting behind this one. I’m using tools that show me pictures in-stream (Threadsy), and New Twitter will show me pictures in-stream, too. I’m going to file this under “Cool Apps that Exploit the Touch-Screen Scroll Feature” and let it pass by.

    And sorry for asking the obvious… but a Path to what, exactly?
