Story behind ORKUT

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
