The Web2.0 Suicide Machine lets you effectively delete all your energy sucking social-networking profiles, kill your fake virtual friends, and completely do away with your web2.0 alterego. Services currently run with Facebook.com, Myspace.com and LinkedIn.com; simply enter your username and password for the required service, and our machine will systematically login to your account, change your profile picture, and then one by one delete all of your friends. Once you hand over your log-in details and click

Commit, the program will methodically delete your info - much like users could do manually. What remains is a brittle cyberskeleton: a profile with no data. Testimonials range from joyous farewells - "Goodbye, cruel world!" - to good-riddance denouements ("Thank you, microblogging. You are, in fact, totally useless").
