Internet doings

A lot of people seem very concerned about Livejournal laying people off in their American offices, which does indeed suck, but I was actually surprised to learn that the Russian owners had kept any of their American employees when they bought it. Especially since that staff was in a city as expensive as San Francisco. They were probably paying them ten times what they paid their Russian staff. So, maybe I'm being naive, but I don't see it as a sign that Livejournal is going under and I'm not going to worry about moving my journal just yet.

What does make me super bummed though is the upcoming death of Yahoo's internet music service Launchcast. I've got more than 10,000 songs rated on my personalized station, many of which were introduced to me by the service, and I've listened to it every day at work since I started it. It's been a labor of love sculpting my ideal playlist and it makes me a little sick to think about it all vanishing into the aether in a few weeks. I'm sure I'll adapt, but after five years of being my own station manager, it's going to be hard as hell.
