The story behind ORKUT!!!....
A guy lost his girlfriend in a train accident....
but the gal's name nowhere appeared in the dead list. This guy
grew up n became IT technical architect in his late 20?s, achievement in itself!!.
He hired developers from the whole globe and plan to make a
software where he could search for his gf through the web..
Things went as planned...
n he found her, after losing millions of dollars and 3 long years!!
It was time to shut down the search operation, when the CEO of Google had a
word with this guy n took over this application,
This Software made a whopping 1 billion dollars profit in its first year,
which we today know as ORKUT .
The guy's name is ORKUT BUYUKKOTEN . Yes its named after him only. Today he
is paid a hefty sum by Google for the things we do like scrapping. He is
expected to b the richest person by 2009
