In the course of my ongoing foray into LiveJournal (making friends and all :-), I keep discovering journals I really should have known about for a while. This hadn't happened mainly due to the fact that I have so far very rarely come across links into (or backlinks out of) LiveJournal (look up Ross's informal survey from last year on this phenomenon).
But it turns out there are social software tinkerers and thinkers in there as well. Exhibit 1 is the recently founded LiveJournal research community, and exhibit 2 is the Sociology of Online Journals community, both of which aggregate posts from a number of individual journal authors and seem to be host to fairly active conversations. I haven't dug deep into them yet, but wanted to highlight the finds.
