Orkut Buyukkokten, creator of Orkut marries his boyfriend

Orkut Buyukkokten, creator of Orkut is married to his boyfriend Derek Holbrook recently. It was expected as the California Supreme Court has made gay marriages legal recently. The ceremony was witnessed by Marissa Mayer, the Vice President of Search Product and User Experience at Google.

When we tried to figure out who is Derek Holbrook, first Google result taken us to Derek’s facebook profile. I guess now two are married, Derek may consider deleting facebook profile in order to strengthen bond with Orkut. 😉

From their scrapbooks it seems that they got married around July 1.

You can use Orkut’s or his boyfriend Derek’s scrapbook to send your greetings to them. Most of their scraps are in Portuguese. I used Google translator to translate some of them and shocked to see that some orkut users showing displeasure on this marriage. Some of them even posted some of their personal pics on Internet. Don’t ask for links! 😉
