Actually, I agree with you. Circles are better thought out and implemented than friend groups were, in my opinion. But I still think LJ is overall a better platform than Google+ is in terms of straight technology.Sep 11, 2011
- Since everyone has started talking about LJ, I've just got to add that my greatest community involvement online, of more than superficial social contact, was on LJ. Come to think of it, I can't think of many other sites where there's a good mix of personal space and community space within the same platform.
Brad, I've always wondered if you miss working on LJ.Sep 12, 2011
- Whatever floats the boat. But of course there should be a public protocol that enables blogs to send messages to each other, just like the email protocol.Sep 12, 2011
- Probably those previous attempts (Google Wave, distributed social networks) are not simple enough. The simplest way is to let blogs send messages to each other like email accounts, so that your blog gets your friends' new posts in real time :-)Sep 12, 2011
