Don't believe everything (or anything) you read here:

http://www.vedomosti.ru/newspaper/article/2009/09/23/214519

I'm told that it's horribly "mistranslated" (probably intentionally) to make a more interesting article.

I wish I brought my own recorder to the interview so I could post the mp3 of what I actually said, which is that I'm working on making social networking federated & inter-operable like email. I'm not sick or bored of social networking or LiveJournal. I still use LJ. I do use it less, now that I don't work on it, and it's true a lot of my friends are now on Twitter or Facebook, but that's why I want things to inter-operate.

Stupid media. I'm done with reporters. Or at least I'll start recording everything.

Update 2009-09-25 23:07: apparently the translation isn't bad, some tell me, except for the headline ("All my friends quit LiveJournal", not true), and perhaps the biased selection of some of the quotes. Many people are getting a different idea from the article than I thought I communicated. Oh well. My apologies to Vedomosti, since it doesn't seem like it was entirely intentional.

это не научная тема требующая доказательств. каждый раз когда я лично сталкивался и мог проверить обе стороны, выяснялось что просто кошмар.
от знакомых, которым могу доверять я слышу тоже самое. пока не было прециндента который бы заставил меня усомниться в моём убеждении.
it not a scientific subject that requires proof. when ever I (personally myself) come across a situation when I know both sides of the subject I encounter horrible lies. All the people who's opinion I can trust say the same thing. And I never seen a precedent that would make me doubt about that.
