Belatedly joining the revolution

I got my first invite to join a social networking site! I won’t name the person but she invited me to join Orkut, which is cool because you cannot join unless someone you know has joined already and has invited you.
Of course, I do think that there are far too many of these sites out there, and I am intent on just joining the one, and Orkut looks promising. I do, however, have a FOAF file, and I’m happy to be involved in that.
Oh yeah… if you want inviting let me know. And if you know me than add me as a friend, if I know you then I’ll accept.


  1. This may sound silly, but what is a FOAF file?

  2. One of these. Basically a file on your web site with a bit of info about you. See the FOAF Project for more.

  3. Some related entries from other weblogs, just in case you haven’t read them yet…

  4. In case you haven’t seen it Neil, PLINK the FOAF search engine.
    I’m just on Friendster, but don’t use it that much.

  5. I was blog hopping and found your site. Its my second time here. I’m a little curious about orkut. is this the a free service too? Or do i need to pay just to get in? i would appreciate if you can invite me. thanks

  6. I wouldn’t mind joining if you wouldn’t mind inviting me to…
