danah has finally posted her long awaited rant on Orkut. Orkut, in case you don't know, is the social networking site developed by a guy at Google. Orkut also means "orgasm" in Finnish. I've been through so many of these now that I'm playing around. When it's running, it's fast so I'm adding everyone I recognize, (I guess danah would call this "misbehaving") and trying to beat Marc Canter in my local game of "king of the mountain." Lucky for me, he's been thrown in jail. Orkut's kind of like... people surfing. As danah says, I do not yet know what I'm going to do when I get there, but I'm sure there'll be another toy to play with by then. ;-)
Joking aside, it's a nice interface and seems to aggregate a lot of features from other similar services, but I agree with danah's points.
