yo, it's me. Saving the name for now but who knows. In what way is this better than LJ, can anyone tell me?

Thanks C for the invite code, I'm surprised I was the first to reply.

(I saw your post on [staff profile] denise's reading page.)

I like the access/subscribe split, the import tool, the fact that I can try out paid features for free at the moment, and the welcome I got from the dev team when I volunteered to get involved. I also like that they're planning to add a lot of features I've been wanting for ages.

It's basically filters on speed, designed to be clearer and easier to use, without the loaded term "friend". Writers who don't want to be googled can give access to loads of people and just subscribe to the ones they want to read, instead of having to set up a separate filter for their normal friends page. Or people who are really paranoid about locked entries but like to read lots of stuff can do it easily instead of having to set up a filter. Sadly reading filters aren't working properly yet, but I'm told that it's coming "soon".

As far as excitement, I think [personal profile] rho summed it up quite well:
"To be topical, Dreamwidth is a lot like Obama. There's a lot of hope there, and everyone has high expectations, that it's never going to be able to meet entirely. In both cases, I don't care. Obama won't be a perfect president. Dreamwidth won't be a perfect website. Both of them have high potential for awesome though, and I'm not going to let the things that will inevitably go wrong sour my opinions."

Mind if I subscribe to you? I'm looking forward to making lots of new friends, given this opportunity for a fresh start.
