I was at a networking event last night and was telling someone that I wanted to build something similar to Yelp.  His first question was, “I wonder if there is a clone script for that?”  What the hell is a clone script?  It basically turns a CMS like Drupal or WordPress into a popular site.  Want your own Twitter?  Get a Twitter Script.  Want your own Facebook?  There are almost a dozen Facebook clone scripts.  There are sites like clonescripts.com that host hundreds of sites.  It seems like if there is a popular site, there is a clone script for it.  And most in PHP.
