I just signed up for app.net, yet another social sort of thing. It looks like their main selling point is 3rd party apps built on their social core.
It has the usual kind of profile page and quickly bunging something in there for my description I serendipitously munged “Web developer” and “woodcarver” into “Webcarver”. Yay, perfect!

Carving is the act of using tools to shape something from a material by scraping away portions of that material. The technique can be applied to any material that is solid enough to hold a form even when pieces have been removed from it, and yet soft enough for portions to be scraped away with available tools.”

For the argument that dev is an additive process, check the Michelangelo quotes:

“Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.”
“The marble not yet carved can hold the form of every thought the greatest artist has.”

and best of all:

“I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.”
