The merger of all social software

Oren Rossen of Huminity (an Israeli social networking platform) posted a very helpful graphic showing his view of the evolution of social software. Just like humans think we’re more evolved than chimpanzees (although I periodically see evidence otherwise), he places Huminity as the logical culmination of the technology’s development. Essentially, he is trying to include all possible functionality under the Huminity name (IM, blog, FOAF, etc.), which strangely enough is also exactly what Myspace, OpenBC, and others are trying to do.
