|I, for one, welcome our new Russian Overlords.

So by now I guess you've all heard the news: SUP bought LiveJournal from Six Apart.
This is pretty cool because:
-- They're ridiculously excited about LiveJournal, and have been for awhile (they previous purchased advertising rights in Russia, but ended up doing a bunch of Russia-specific LJ development as well)
-- They want to throw a lot of resources at LiveJournal in terms of product development and engineers.
-- "LiveJournal.com, Inc." now stands alone again, focusing on nothing but LJ.
-- Sounds like I'll have more LJ influence (via new role as advisory board member) than I've had recently.
And to note:
-- I just found out about this last week and don't have much more details than I've read in the news posts. I definitely wasn't involved in this.... this all happened after I left Six Apart.
-- I get no fatty payout via SUP, SixApart, my non-liquid SixApart stock (if this increases 6A's value), or any other means. I wish I did.
-- Goats have an average life expectancy of 12 years. They can live as long as 17 years. Frank's still good.
-- I'm still not migrating my journal. (people keep asking me every time something on LJ changes)
-- "In Soviet Russia, SUP buys you." (courtesy coffeechica)
Now I get to sit back and watch all the community reactions and conspiracy theories. I can't wait to see what everybody hypothesizes about the Kremlin, Jews, etc. Always fun to watch.
Don't you afraid, that your child will suffer under new Russian owner? Don't you afraid, they will change LJ to a bad side?
Sup is a first Russian company, which is buying so large internet service.
What about KGB influence? =)
