Synchronicity

I just found that a new friend was a livejournal user and happened upon the realization that this, almost exactly, is my ten year anniversary. I haven't posted in a number of months but I thought the incredible timing of this was too good to pass up making a post.

I still believe networked blogging, ala livejournal, is the most incredible social networking format that has been created, but it has serious social drawbacks since it is only inclusive to a select group of people who are of the creative class. This, however, creates a special environment that is lively and important.

I will spend the next day trying to think more deeply about how this medium has changed, and become a different space and how it relates to the internet as it has changed in the past 5 years since I did my 5 year analysis of the state of livejournal.
