the Liane community

I hadn't logged into my Orkut account for a while, but it was time to accept connections of a few more friends over lunch. Poking around at my scraps revealed that there is an entire community there of "Liane"s. In Portugese. Seems that what I thought was an uncommon name is not entirely rare among Brazilian women. Nobody will ever mistake me for Brazilian (too bad, really), it's been a few years since I visited Brazil (highly recommended, by the way -- Rio is a gorgeous, friendly, vibrant city), and my Portugese is nonexistant. Still, maybe I'll pull out the Portugese-English dictionary again and join the forum.

We'll never compete in numbers with the vast Dave conspiracy 1, but the idea of a Liane-specific support network is still amusing.


1If you work in tech in the US, there's always at least one Dav[e|id] in close proximity. Usually multiple. I currently work regularly with six of them, rendering the usual technique to differentiate between two useless. Only one of them blogs, further validating the hypothesis of a vast underground Dave network. Clearly they're not ready to go public yet.

I don't know about the Dave conspiracy, but there's a wide reaching Eric Conspiracy<a/>
