Remember how a lot of people once dismissed Twitter? "Why do I want to read about what my friend is making for dinner?" they asked. Same with Facebook: "Why would I want to read status updates?" Shaker, a site that's launching in the U.S. today, may provoke the same kind of initial reaction. A lot of people are going to take one look and write it off as nothing more than a Second Life redux. But it's not.
