I have a lot of things to talk about.
Some might call me a loner. We’re busy students here. Our time tables are different and therefore when one is free the other might not be free. Most of the times the breakfast/lunch/dinner times are the only chances we get to interact. When you’re free either you lock yourself up in the room and listen to crap for limitless periods of time or watch anime till you exhaust all the episodes out.

Some, like me, like a lot of over-the-internet socialising -mostly shouting at and getting shouted at by fellow orkuteers. The internet is a big place. Some say the internet made the world smaller. To me it looks like my world has just got bigger. People. They come in all sizes and shapes; and yet there are always cases where you can find similarities among people. These similarities are so ubiquitous that we tend to generalize most of the time without examining the depth of similarity among people who we’re upto generalizing about. Orkut is a big external thing. We have internal newsgroups in the campus. A lot of funny stuff goes on there. Slashdot and similar sites are great ways
to keep in touch with the rest of the world.

By the way, my exams ended today 😛

I’ll be back.

This is a great place to be.
A nice way to meet people from different parts of the world online. A nice way to interact with people in various “communities” through mostly healthy discussions. But life isn’t that peachy 🙂
As you might have noticed I’m from Bangalore, a city in the mysterious country called India.
India… what a country!

coming back to Orkut. You’ll notice that there are a hell lot of fake profiles and dormant communities. This is the result of people either being too busy to check Orkut or due to the inactivity of those who consider Orkut to be a place where jobless people hang around.
Who knows… I might just be one of them.

Just like how google integrated Gmail and Gtalk I’m waiting for the day when they integrate everything… Gmail + Gtalk + Orkut !
now howz that?

As you might infer from the Screenshot… it looks like Orkut servers are either slacking off or trying out what I was talking about in the earlier paragraph (thinking optimistically :p)

later ^_^
