On the usefulness of LiveJournal

August 4th, 2011 (11:53 am)

There's a meme going around urging support for LiveJournal after the recent DDoS attack. While I post from Dreamwidth, it remains really a back-up journal, and most of my interactions remain on LJ. The meme links to this Moscow Times article which emphasises how important LJ is in the distribution of opinion in Russia, in a fashion which the security apparatus does not seem to like. It's worth reading for a reminder of the contexts in which LJ has to operate.
