John McAfee announced The Brown List in a surprise appearance in Las Vegas at the Defcon, the largest gathering of computer hackers in the world. While the site sounds like it's just a magnet for rants, McAfee looks at it differently. "This taps into anger in a positive way. Instead of getting angry and shooting at somebody on the highway, or yelling at your wife, you can log onto the site. Instead of just lashing out, give us your positive solutions

The guy's got name recognition, but not much after his recent trip through crazy town. But this sounds like a sure - fire failure. No one is going to rant here about their moron brother in law. Or maybe everyone is. Either way, who gives a shit?What happens after the rant - is there any political organization or will this site help gain social organization? Otherwise this thing is going to fall flat like a cold turd.

Don't forget about ad revenue...

Just because it doesn't accomplish anything major doesn't mean it won't be successful. Hell, has Facebook done a single worthwhile thing yet in its entire existence?
