So this is the geekiest post I will do but I got to meet the creator of Livejournal at sxsw! His name is Brad Fitzpatrick He was on a panel called "How do you sell the milk when the cow is free?" about open source projects. I happened to go there because another panel was full but these things are always serendipitous. We use all open source tools on my team and we have to defend that choice to the rest of the company so it was also a useful session.

He still journals here http://brad.livejournal.com/

I got to tell him that he made my life better and I am grateful that i had a chance to say what his work meant to me in person.
This place has changed my life and community and I have missed it as a safe and almost sacred place to express myself. His little start up project has millions of users and has changed many peoples lives. This place has its limits as all the myfacetwitribebuzz sites do. But I am very glad that we have them so I can know all of you better and love all of you more.

All these social networking sites have fundamentally changed the way we interact as humans. But someone made these technologies. Someone had an idea that changed the world. I guess that is what many of us are trying to do. So thank the people that you come across that have made your life better. They need to know that. Why the fuck else are we here?
