I'm probably at least a month behind on reading my LiveJournal friends list, and unlikely to catch up anytime soon. I've been peeking at various journals sporadically, but the volume of LJ postings is such that I never want to look at them these days unless I have a big block of time, which almost never happens. Unfortunate. So if there's anything you've been expecting me to see and reply to in your journal, drop me a note in email, or post a comment on this entry (on my journal page, not in LJ) and point me to it. (It's a little like Usenet; there came a point, maybe twelve years ago when I was working at Apple, when I realized that I could spend 24 hours a day reading interesting newsgroups, and that the only sane solution was to quit cold turkey. I'm not quite ready to give up on reading LJ entirely, but I'm having a hard time reading it only in moderation.)
Anyway, so I'm not going to have time to look at Beth B's shiny new LJ anytime soon, or for that matter Lawrence S's (which has been around a fair bit longer). (Lawrence was one of my Clarion classmates—the only one I know of who has much of an online presence these days.)
I did notice that there's apparently been something of a kerfuffle (or perhaps a brouhaha) over fanfic and slash lately, but I also know that I dasn't go start reading it—that way lies madness, and I have an awful lot to do this weekend, including writing a couple of long-delayed entries of my own (unrelated to fanfic). But Beth points to the relevant Making Light entry and assorted other stuff, so if you're interested, go forth and follow links.
