I created a orkut profile and invited a couple people to be my friends... but looking at my list of email contacts maybe I just put it on here and those interested can contact me about an invite.
From the site:
orkut.com is a new social networking service named for the Google engineer who developed it, Orkut Buyukkokten. (Orkut is easier to spell and pronounce than Buyukkokten.) It was created as an independent project to help people around the world connect.
Anyway, let me know if you are interested in joining up. It's like MySpace but less cluttered and less crazy unreadable profiles.
