quoteBasically what’s going on right now is like when your friends or your parents buy a new house that’s getting built for them in some new suburb and get sooooo excited they forget other people don’t really give a shit, and during the building process they keep on going, OMG COME VISIT MY NEW HOUSE, and finally you cave in and go, and it smells like fresh paint and there’s no carpet just concrete, and you just kind of stand there going, uh-huh as they gush about the cabinets that are gonna be installed and that bay window in the dining area while sweaty construction workers work on putting in the fixings, thinking “dude, if you think I’m going to drive an extra twelve miles now to have movie night at this place as much as we used to, you are so wrong”.

quoteI’m not fannish, I find it frustrating that Dreamwidth has been seized on as a fannish project when it’s not, I find the hype and bitterness over invite codes hard to understand (people, it’s in closed beta, this is the equivalent to sawdust everywhere and people in overalls banging on things and a crackly radio playing chart hits somewhere), and I think that level of hype is dangerous because it creates unrealistic expectations and with that, disappointment. Of course it’s not going to shit glitter and rainbows and world peace. But I, personally, am glad that I’ve given it my time and contributed towards it.

Hey, I know what livejournal needs: more cross posting.

We have this thing called RSS. It is a magical device. It allows you to publish individual feeds, and people to choose what they want.

Why can’t people when they get on a new site - dw/twitter/lj whatever just either:

a) realise anyone who wants to read those details likely has an account on those sites (this goes especially for twitter)

b) everyone who doesn’t likely doesn’t want to read it (and especially for twitter. I have a twitter account so I can add you and then ignore you, obviously).

So I’m asking you nicely: LoudTwitter is an awful awful idea. Please stop it.

How to get a Dreamwidth invite code

How is Dreamwidth better than LiveJournal?

I keep being asked by different people how you can get your hands on a Dreamwidth invite code, so this post is intended as a point people can be directed to if they want in on the action.

Remember - selling invite codes is a big no-no, so if you’re offered a code for a fee, let Dreamwidth know so that they can do something about it.
