LiveJournal sold

So, it’s official: SixApart are buying LiveJournal. Reactions seem to be ranging from horror to relief. It’s not really a huge surprise to me. In spite of some claims to the contrary, I’d been told that Brad really didn’t have much to do with the day-to-day running of LiveJournal—stuff like policy, dealing with abuse, and so on. I’d already guessed that he was looking for an exit strategy. I looked at Six Apart and Moveable Type when LiveJournal deleted my account without notice.
