Though since its possible to track visitors with lj stats and friending is never private, I guess the only thing left was being able to know who said what where and maximizing cross-posting potential to include comments as well (which would be aimed primarily at social network users?).
Still, LJ as usual manages to implement new policies without really considering its userbase >_>
Anyway, since the flist is currently flooded with DNW posts thanks to the latest bout of LJ induced rage, its probably as good a time as any to post some links to random shiny stuff on the web that caught my eye over the summer:
