"db-db loves you" is a new web arena for exhibiting online identities and connecting like-minded individuals. It is a continuation of the online design community project db-db.com. Since 2001, db-db was started as an online inspiration outlet and a collaboration platform. It has fostered many self-initiated art and design projects. Now, with the surging of Blogs and social networking sites, db-db aims to help people create their own platforms - provide applications that can create sophisticated Blogs and web pages. It also attempts to advocate a different kind of online relationships.

Technically, db-db is a WYSIWYG-type web authoring system and community. It allows the user to create data-driven web pages or blogs in a web-based graphical user interface. The embedded system provides, not only templates, but also layout-editing tools for designing highly personalized blogs and interactive sites. Blogs can be regarded as many people’s online presences; db-db offers freedom and flexibility in expressing users' tastes and identities through the design and appearance of their db-db Blogs.

In addition, establishing relationships on the Internet becomes so prevalent nowadays. Numerous social networking sites are trying to make links between people around the globe every minute. Many of them focus on helping the user expand their networks as fast as possible in order to make profits. However, we question the authenticity of these relationships, many of which are just based on a mere click, by creating a new networking system. db-db takes on another approach in its social networking part. Although it is also set up as a place to make new friends, it is passive when you want to establish a link with somebody. For example, you can choose to add another db-db user to your love list, however, he/she will not be told who you are until he/she also adds you. Serendipity counts. Furthermore, db-db is a testbed for online relationships that based on time and effort. There are games that allow you to spend time, effort and even money to somebody in order to impress them or gain their trust.
