I've been [ profile] cpm at LiveJournal for a bit over 8 years. Even though it had a bit of a reputation for being a place where whiny emo kids would wax poetic, I thought the company and the product was awesome. Everything was relatively transparent, the company was strongly against ads and other clutter, and everything was open sourced so you could submit patches if you were so inclined. What more could a geek ask for?

I hardly know anyone who still uses LJ. I have a permanent account, but I've noticed the free user experience has worsened over time. Most people I've read have moved on.

So, new beginnings. I stopped writing for the most part a few years ago. Maybe a new venue bust my cycle enough to get started again.

I guess part of the reason why I decided to move to Dreamwidth is because LiveJournal's free user experience is worsening, and also because LiveJournal's business practices are no longer as transparent as they're supposed to be. As Dreamwidth's struggle to find a payment service showed, Dreamwidth really is committed to free creative expression and everything else they say in their mission statement and terms of service.

Welcome to the site -- we're a pretty friendly place, and I'm really happy to see more people show up and take an interest!

Uh... yeah, I've got nothing else right now.
