When I first signed on to MyBlogLog.com, there was a guy named Eric (far left) who friended me immediately. I de-friended him because I thought he was like Colonel Sanders or that Tom guy at MySpace — more an avatar-mascot than a real person. However, a real guy named Eric Marcoullier emailed me and assured me he was real and so I re-friended him. But recently, Eric disappeared and was replaced by some other avatar-dude (near left) claiming to be Eric. The first Eric seemed a more friendly friend. The new Eric seems more pensive — like he’s really not sure he wants to be my friend, but he has to because he now works for Yahoo!
