Net-heavy Applications

I hate myself for having a slow internet connection. All these new, web 2.0, applications are heavy in network usage. Facebook, plurk, and the like. Perhaps they already use smaller images or objects, but there are plenty (too many) of them. This makes it hard for bandwidth beggars like me.

Arrrggghhh ...

I am being left out by the world ...
Would somebody help and rescue me? (Write apps for slow bandwidth users like me.)

I know what you mean. I know it's a bit of a cop out, but have you thought of trying the mobile versions of some of these websites, e.g. Facebook Mobile? I know that Facebook for me is just a glorified Mailbox and Twitter-esque client. It's mobile website does this just as well - if not better - than the full site.
