Groveling Pays

My embarrassing display of groveling has paid off with an invitation to Orkut! My brother-in-law, Chris, was kind enogh to extend the gracious email invite to me after first pointing out that “Orkut” is Finnish slang for “orgasm”. I’m not going to question how he came by this information, but I’m not skeptical of its veracity. :-)

Thank you very much for the offer, Chris. I’ve already signed up, invited a few friends and joined several communities. If you haven’t received your invite yet, sit tight. If it doesn’t come, you can take it as a sign of my disdain for you personally or you can pester me about my oversight.

So long for now, but keep watcing your inbox or reading the blog. Or better yet, Syndicate Me!

  1. “Also, most of these sites had specific goals in mind. Friendster is all about dating (and Match.com is worried), Tribe is about everything, LinkedIn and Ryze are about jobs and who knows what Orkut is for.”

    Now that you are on the inside, have you figured out its unique purpose? :)

  2. You know, I’m at a loss. It definitely could be used for dating, but it’s actually much more akin to Tribe. Lots of “communities” for just about any taste and most are public.
