A Web two dot Noooooo idea

I was reading through TechCrunch this morning and came across this article about a web app for chore management. This is just wrong on so many levels, it boggles the mind.

I can hardly wait for the 'auction extension' which will allow you to have your kids bid against each other for chores. Let's take sibling issues to a whole new level.

Having a new brother or sister will be even more of an issue than it is for your kids then. Everybody knows that the younger kids will work for lower wages, since they don't really understand the concept of money. Who can compete with a sib that will do a dollar job for a quarter, because it is shiny... Or 15 cents instead of a quarter, because they will get two shiny coins instead of just one...

And then the 'outsourcing extension' which lets the kids in your neighborhood bid against your own kids to do the chores on your chore list.

But watch out for the 'what is that chore worth' extension that will allow your kids to see what other kids are making for the same chore in other families.

Are strikes that far behind....

Eventually, somebody will create a mashup on StreetView, that let's kids find houses in their neighborhood with long grass and windows that could use a good washing....

There will be roving gangs of jr. entrepreneur roaming the streets, fixing up the neighborhood, making our neighborhoods, towns and cities better places to live!

Oh. Never mind.
