Let's get this straight, you're asking for a website from which you
can pick and choose a "cool" profile name for your Bebo account. An
account which is supposed to be a representative presentation of who
you are and what you're about.
Are you beginning to see the direction my argument is going in? Of
course you haven't. I'll continue.
Back in the old, dark days of the internet when men were men, women
were men and children were FBI agents, no one cared what people
thought of them. This was when the internet was still merely a bright
spark of newly discovered freedom burning bright against the darkened
backdrop of a world half enslaved by totalitarian freedom-hating
governments, unscrupulous money grabbing corporations, backward
millenia-old religions and millions upon millions of dead-eyed
sheeple. The internet burned brightly as an escape, a way to show who
you were to a wider audience, a way of discovering and sharing things
you never knew existed, a way of forcing back the ever encroaching
shadows of the real world to keep your internal flame burning just
that little bit longer.
The internet burned brighter and stronger as the rush of people to it
acted as fuel to the fire, and the rush of companies to it was the
oxygen it needed to sustain itself, and to grow. The Napster and Kazaa
era came and went as the dark lords of the world attempted to wrestle
back their power from this bastard child of technology and freedom
that we know as the web. People pushed each other by finding, creating
and sharing things that would have people in the old world hung, drawn
and quartered but in this new space, this virtual plane of existence
it did not solicit the fiery condemnation of preachers and politicians
alike. We laughed. We saw these examples of hate, of destruction and
of evil and we laughed and encouraged them; for it was not the same
evil as that which ravaged the lands of the physical world, but an
evil unsullied by power, money, dogma or time. This was new evil,
strong evil, and pure evil. It shaped a generation and a way of life
was born. The internet was no longer an escape from life, it was a
mirror of it; a dark and distorting mirror in which our reflections
are not always what we wanted, hoped or indeed expected to see.
Bebo and such sites are like a swimming pool on an ocean liner,
floating in the middle of the endless abyss of the internet. You get a
taster of what it's like to be in the water, but you learn nothing of
its depth, breadth or more unsavoury inhabitants. Whether we like it
or not however, these fist-clenchingly corporately built sites are
part and parcel of the modern internet. The reason for accepting them
is that they are an easy way to share at least some tiny proportion of
yourself with people. Show them what amuses you, what confuses you,
what makes you you.
You come before us, the anonymous masses to ask us for a "cool Bebo
profile name" which you can use to impress your real life friends with
just how stylish and original you are. We say to you that your attempt
to bastardise the concepts of these halls will not be answered.
Anyways, no I don't know any websites for cool bebo profile names.
