Well I'm still using the online equivalent of a cassette recorder! I totally agree with everything you say in the article. It worries me that people are abandoning technologies not because they don't work, but merely because they're no longer shiny and new. It's the desperate rush to join whatever new site all the cool kids are joining.

And the irony is that on the internet new is very rarely better. I don't use LIvejournal out of nostalgia - I use it because it's better than newer sites like facebook and tumblr. It's more flexible and it's more powerful.

I'm currently living in fear of the demise of the DVD - I don't think most people appreciate how much is going to be lost when DVDs disappear.

Heh. Thanks for reading! As you can see, I use Twitter, and have been since late 2007. I also joined Facebook after much peer pressure, so I find my is much more split than it used to be between different online platforms.

But when it comes to actual blogging, I really don't see much intrinsic technical advantage of, say, Wordpress over LJ. And the cost of moving house, as it were, makes it totally not worth it.

Exactly. LiveJournal works. If LiveJournal was still as active as it used to be I wouldn't bother with any other blogging sites at all. Blogger is just awful - it has the most incredibly clumsy interface. I abandoned facebook because I couldn't deal with its interface at all.
