For those who don't read [livejournal.com profile] news: Livejournal is no longer permitting the creation of basic level accounts. Existing accounts will keep the option.

This was first announced in the comments section of a different news post, and was spun as streamlining the registration process (since three options are so much more confusing than two). This is a remarkably shortsighted business decision that goes against users' expectations for the way the site should run, and not announcing a change this big and then justifying it with the argument that the users are too stupid to know what's good for them (and that it doesn't need announcing because it only applies to new users--no existing user would ever want to make a second account, right?) makes me even less happy. LJ lost me as even a potential paying customer a year or so ago, and now I'm definitely considering moving elsewhere.

Hi! Friended. :)

Unfortunately I'm going to be in LA Friday evening so won't be able to make it. Things are going to be quite crazy in May between moving, Brian graduating, and family stuff... but I'll be there in June, certainly. See you around, though?

I'll be around, more in LA than San Diego, but around. I might even make the May workshops, depending. Let me know when you're going up north. I'm headed up Saturday midday this weekend.

ha found you
