When Buzz Attacks

"Oh shit. I did something horribly wrong. My Facebook is set to update from my Twitter and blog accounts, Tumblr and flixter repeat updates from Facebook, if applicable, and Myspace bulletins get repeated to Twitter and Facebook. I have Posterous and Friendster feeds that update Facebook and Tumblr. When I post to Yelp, Foursquare or Gowalla, my Twitter account gets CCd and Google Reader monitors each of these. I have Reddit, Stumbleupon, Linkedin, del.icio.us and Digg accounts that get repeated, but I don't exactly remember the update cycle of all this shit. Just now, I added Buzz and now my entire system has broken. It's become a circle, somehow I've created my own internet Ouroboros. The circuit is flowing and I'm absentmindedly making 200 updates per minute. They're all about the same thing: a post I made announcing my trying Buzz. Only the posts are all slightly different because I stupidly use a random thesaurus filter to overcome Facebook and Twitter's anti-spam policies, and this is used along with a random introductory phrase and generated short url link. Dear god, what have I done? I think it's all become sentient and decided that the human is expendable and I'm not needed any more.

I can't stop the cycle. Oh fuck help me. God damn you Google."

So far as I can tell Google Buzz is Google's Attempt to compete with Facebook's Status Updates - so that anything that your friends do _anywhere_ is available for you to see. But I can't be sure, because I don't have it yet. Bastards.
