Dating Open Source Developers

Co-branded personals are getting a bit out of hand:

Today on a link from Slashdot, I saw that OSDN has personals. That's right - the Open Source Developer's Network. Nothing says hot date potential like "open source development."

OSDN Personals

Notice the Covad ad along the side: "Guaranteed Uptime." From OSDN Personals? Hmmm. Maybe not so much. and Springstreet have databases of eager singles looking for action. Other sites license connections to those databases, adding their own visitors to the pool of potential bodies. OSDN appears to use the whole database, so this OSDN Personals service is just for helping loads of geeks into the mix.
