apophenia: The Cultural Divide Between LiveJournal and Six Apart

Link: apophenia: The Cultural Divide Between LiveJournal and Six Apart.

Danah has more cultural insight into the blogworld in her pinky than I have altogether and assesses this deal from an interesting perspective.  And yes, I'm one of those people that thought LJ was just for teens...  obviously its a lot more than that.  In fact, now that I think of it, I think of it like Diaryland and I've definately witnessed firsthand how close those communities are and how far away from the new blog wave that hit in '04. 

This is almost as bad as when AMF bought Harley Davidson.
