Anyone Remember Livejournal?

Anyone else remember Livejournal? This post (not the first of its kind) reminded me of how things used to be, when people could blog and talk, and build a community, and find links to what they'd written years earlier - before we were all migrated to Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Whatsapp, Instagram, and so on - a kind of digital trail of tears in which each pasture was smaller and less fertile than the last. And so, here we stand at last, perched on the brink of every instant, toppling from event to event, buoyed by nothing but the latest hysteria, lacking all perspective.

If only Livejournal still existed, I'd go back in an instant! But alas, such things are not and can never be again.

Oh, wait...
