LJ covered at length by BBC

Excellent article in BBC’s news Magazine on LiveJournal, its history with the Russians, and where things stand politically, found from LJ’s own Twitter account: LiveJournal: Russia’s unlikely internet giant

Russia’s presidential election is Sunday, March 4. Things have been amazingly stable here up till now. After the DDoS attacks last fall, I expected outages in the weeks leading up to this weekend, but I have not noticed anything. Fingers are crossed for this weekend.

About songdogmi

I'm a longhaired almost-hippie stuck in the inner suburbs of a major rust-belt metropolis who's thoughtful, creative, and kind of geeky. In exchange for a paycheck I run around in a cubicle maze most days. When I escape, I play music, hang out in coffee houses, dink around on the computer, take naps, and think I should be off in the woods somewhere. Every once in a while I get in my car and drive far, far away, though I've always come back so far.
