Special MySpaces

There seem to be a cornucopia of MySpaces coming out.
Here’s one that seems to be a MySpace for Academics (Thanks Sarah).

I thought you might find it interesting.
I’ve recently seen a MySpace type site for Mommies, and one for Denmark as well as others. It’s a trend!
I wonder why libraries aren’t collaboratively creating these environments for our users? Is the only real collaboration we do about ourselves, our own networks – cataloguing together, webjunctioning together, buying through consortia together, meeting our needs. Are we too local?
Can we truly claim to be user centered? Other than geographically, how?
