Quite fun and cool. According to the website, it is:
…a website where you can track and talk about the books, music, movies, food and other items that interest you. You can mark a product one of three ways: I am consuming this, I have consumed this, and I intend to consume this.
It called “All Consuming” because:
All Consuming means many things to many people. Some folks take it literally, as in “consumerism”. Others take it to mean being “consumed” by a great book, album, movie or delectable food. Think double entendre with a sprinkle of irony.
I added a few entries this evening. This website meets what some friends and I discussed on a trip back in August to our college stomping grounds: a website that lets people share the books they are currently reading, have read recently, and want to read soon.
My only suggestion would be for the website creators to integrate Amazon wish lists and Netflix queues!
Of course public websites like this offer a treasure trove of specific consumer information that theoretically (and probably will be) harvested for commercial marketing by others. This, perhaps, is the unadvertised dark-side of these types of social networking web services. If that proves true in the future, I guess I’ll have to delete my email addresses and create a new online identity… but will the process really be that simple?!
