Microsoft opened it's social network named So.cl over the weekend to everyone. Microsoft is positioning So.cl for students and as a research project from its FUSE Labs. So.cl combines search and social networking. So.cl is an interesting concept, but that is all what it is right now.
So.cl does not scale right now. It is slow and when I tried to log in via Facebook, I got a error page, with definitely the cuttest error bug there is - but it is still an error. Inside So.cl you also get greeted with an apology message.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
