Moving over

Due to recent LJ shenanigans*, I'm considering moving my blogging over to here. Quite a few of the people I follow on LJ seem to be jumping ship, and I want to be able to keep reading them. I'll be trying to work out how to set up cross-posting and suchlike, so I can hopefully still maintain the old platform as well (not sure if this is possible without paid accounts... will see).

If I know you on LJ but haven't friended you here, please let me know - especially if you're using a different username!


* silently monetizing outgoing links in people's journals... deeply morally dubious. And also plain stupid, given how many geeks there are on LJ who are capable of reading JavaScript and finding out exactly what's going on, and raising bloody hell about it

For the benefit of us old ladies who don't follow tech stuff, what does it mean to monetize a link?


Good grief, Firefox's spell check recognizes 'monetize'. I'm not sure how I feel about this....

OK, I'm moved! I'm ok with LJ being run by venal people, but venal and stupid is a really infelicitous combination.:-(

It's really kind of guilt-inducing, having two free accounts here on DW. They need to get the credit card processor soon, so I can pay for one.
