As fun as LiveJournal has been over the years, it is increasingly being overshadowed by the likes of Facebook and Twitter, and even Tumblr a bit. I've seen many friends posting less and less here on LJ, and it seems I'm doing the same myself.

I'm not totally abandoning my Journal, but defintely won't be posting here nearly as often. So, here is some contact info for me on other social networking sites:

Twitter: http://twitter.com/dmuth

Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/dmuth

And finally, my personal website:


I'll see you out there.

This makes me sad. LJ is still the best site for outright journaling there is.

Twitter is too limited and is best for short anecdotes.

Facebook has that real name culture that I don't care for, and is way too "busy". I hardly have any friends listed as I hardly use the site and am still amazed at the quantity of stuff in the stream!

The more people leave here, the more it spirals downwards until LJ will be completely irrelevant outside of Russia. :(

No disagreement there, but LJ simply hasn't kept up with the times. They had a great lead in 2002 but squandered it, and the next you thing you knew, MySpace was eating their lunch. Then Facebook and Twitter.

Screw failbook, and twitter is worthless for much of anything beyond a quick herpderp. Bad cheopard!

I sent you a friend request on Facebook a while back. It's still pending approval by you.

I don't know your real name. You'll need to PM that to me.

It's in my LJ user profile.

Disparaging comments really don't help the discussion any. :-/

I have been trying to get away from the failbook.

diaspora seems much better, and you can even create your own pod to keep your information to yourself. No evil info sucking company behind it.

I never even got into twitter, I try to work with ideas and concepts I can't compress into 140 some odd characters.

I pretty much lost all interest in Diaspora after reading this awhile back.

Was cool to meet/see you at FCN! This is Shamus, just wanted to thank you for helping to make my con experience a good one. I want to make an effort to keep in touch with people that I met; I'm something of a social groundhog, only popping up occasionally, but trying to fix that. Again, thanks for being cool.
