Thanks to pir_anha I am now a member of orkut, using the name stef maruch.

It has a Usenet community. That is...just wrong.

It's a networking web site like friendster, but it seems better. You can't see much of it until you get invited to join. I will invite you if you want. (It involves giving them your email address, so I won't do it without your permission.)

To nod conspiritorially to Biscuit, with half-smile.

Re: Moo
my favourite bit was how they all immediately bitched about the interface, until somebody wisely said "why in the world are we still discussing this here? lets go to a newsgroup." and off they went.

what strikes me as totally weird is that it has a community each for LJ support and LJ abuse members. say what?

my theory is that a lot of people are simply using communities as they would use interest keywords on LJ -- to indicate conveniently what all they're interested in. since the interface does in fact suck, that's not a bad subversion.

Re: Moo
*giggle*giggle*giggle* So is there an alt.orkut newsgroup?

I seem to be using the communities the way I use interest keywords on LJ, too.

And yes, the interface sucks. I'm supposed to describe my sense of humor with a DROP-DOWN LIST OF FIVE CHOICES?

But it's fun to watch.
