( A big strength of Livejournal )( Livejournal may have the most insane abuse policy of any blogging platform )
This affects ALL of us( Standard blogging techniques breach LJs TOS—even quiz memes could get you in trouble )
( A caveat, but either way it's a big problem for LJ )
( My plans for 'jumping ship' (redux) )
So, some clarifications.
( Livejournal has two principle Unique Selling Points (USPs) )
( What I'm looking at for journalling/blogging )
( What I'm looking at for the Friends Page )
( As for the network? )
Maybe, if we get this right, we can have it so you choose where to put your content. You choose how to aggregate the content of others. You do it quickly, and easily. You choose whter to trust as a primary platform a company like LJ, a friend running a node (*waves hand*), a new start up, or you get your own server.
But they can all interlink, all interoperate. It'd be like LJ, with the privacy you want, but encompassing the whole damn web.
I think that'd be cool. Will it work? Dunno. But the prognosis is good.
