    Non problemo.

    The interesting part of Orkut is the idea of trust-metrics, not the one security folks think of in PKI, but the idea of belonging to a group by having its members rank you. See these articles:

    Have any of you guys checked out Groove (http://www.groove.net/). Interesting file sharing, collaboration, chat program. Everything is over an ecrypted tunnel. Only drawback is that it's windows only (I haven't tried with wine yet, so if anyone has, please let me know if you were successful).

    Kind of a cool concept. We have been trying it at work for the collaboration aspect (multiple authors of a single document) and have been pretty pleased with it thus far.
    Man, I looked at that a couple of years ago from a VC perspective as well as an alternative to Lotus R5. If I recall correctly it was pretty easy to write small services within the groove framework. The groove guys gave us an elevator pitch and it seemed that groove was an attempt by Mitch Kapor to make up for all the sins of Lotus becoming a piece of cranky bloatware. Beyond that, I think there are a few federal efforts using groove in a secure environment.

    Of course this doesn't have much to do with social software such as Friendster and Orkut, which at their simplest are RDF parsing engines with a portrayal interface.

    Fuck 'em all!

    Seriously, though... Fuck Orkut, LiveJournal, Xanga, and every other goddamn journal/blog site out there. They're nothing more than a tool for narcissistic passive-aggressives to keep perpetuating their little drama circles.

    Orkut (http://www.orkut.com) is a social network in the net, where you
    can meet new friends and connect your activities into communities.
    it is like friendstar.
    Now there is an orkut fake in the
    wild named Orcut (http://www.orcut.com).

    If you are a member of Orkut you receive messages with an invitation to
    join a community with a link inside like this:
    http://www.orkut.com/Community.aspx?cmm=32318 But in this message orkut is changed into orcut:
    http://www.orcut.com/Community.aspx?cmm=32318

    If you go to this site and try to log in like you normally do, the site
    owner collects your user name and password of orkut.
Working...
