Done with AI final, done with the CS department forever!

And the first public LiveJournal clone site I've seen! http://www.deadjournal.com/ Kick ass!

I'm going to go hit Subway, then study for 4 hours until my History (of the Atomic Bomb) final.

Shit.... I need to get out of here. CS people are being geeky and dumb.

It'll probably take awhile from them to get used to the setup and then they'll start to differentiate.

Don't you have to do some Senior Project for CS? Or is that only for Comp E? Brian did some fucked up, huge project this year.

How long before Livejournal-based sites can add people from each other to friends lists.

My grammar sucks because I'm drunk. Oh, and that wasn't a serious question. :)

Re: Yay!

Actually I was thinking the same thing when I saw Deadjounral.. Sometime in the future perhaps there will be a massive "master" LJ server that other journal "slaves" can sync their data to, so then there could be a giant matrix of jounral sites.

Hey, it could happen. ;)

Re: Yay!

Maybe you're not serious, but I am. It'd be excellent for LJ servers to be able to communicate with one another, a whole network of LJ sites, with no dependency on any central server.

right, so are we really happy that they just completely, shamelessly copied LJ's code...?

It almost seems like they're mocking LJ in a really veiled manner..but *blinks* I'm a pessimist...

They didn't copy the LJ code, they downloadedit and modified it for their use.

Which is perfectly fine.

OUt of curiosity...

What happens when a site starts offering paid functionality for free with ads, or some other revenue model?

What if... *shudders* Microsoft thinks this is a good idea. Like they did with Netscape and are trying to do with AIM?

Re: OUt of curiosity...

That would all be fine. The code is free.
