this year I woke up, realized my friends list was getting a bit slow, and resolved to liven it up again. treat livejournal as if it's a hot new social network and go after some circles. it worked fabulously, I no longer think this place is "dying", it just took a little initiative. I don't need a network of millions of people for this place to feel cool again. I need, like, 100. So I made some new friends.
but I had no friends history because the joule was gone.
so I recoded it, and it's here. obviously I can't promise it will live forever, but spacefem.com has been going strong since 2002 or so.
