a departure from my regular whining.. everytime someone on my friendslist posts (which is pretty infrequent) I start thinking about ways that livejournal could be revitalized. I'm kind of curious if the russian owners are finding success with the lowest common denominator entertainment news postings that appear so frequently. I'm sad that I'll probably never make "new" friends here the way I could when it was active. I feel like I could really benefit from the deeper communication and more pragmatic privacy this site has as opposed to all the newer stuff.
Today I considered starting a community called something like "the ones still here". I don't know what the numbers are like but it seems like the american users of old here probably number in the low hundreds. I wonder if the other people left feel the same way and would be interested in this.
honestly, I think a lot of folks would come back with a simple re-brand, but that's not in my hands.
