Anyway, I guess we'll see. It actually sounds like a pretty good deal for us. The crew that bought us is SUP, who has been running LJ in Russia for 6A, and now has formed Livejournal, Inc. to run LJ. This means we get a crew that is running JUST US. 6A sticks with Movable Type, TypePad, and Vox. Also of interest is LJ, Inc.'s forming of the LiveJournal Advisory Board, which will oversee issues relating to privacy, user policy and security and will be independent of the LiveJournal, Inc. management team. Part of this board will be LJ users, two at a time, selected by an open online election. Another will be Brad Fitzpatrick. That says something, not only that they would do it, but that Brad would be part of it.
So, keep your eyes peeled. This could be the start of a new and better direction, we'll have to wait and see. more information is available and will be updated at the new community, lj_2008.
