Today is the day I scream about social media start-ups on tumblr, apparently. Linking rather than crossposting, because I'm pretty sure my auto-crossposter would pull in the whole reblog chain and that's obnoxious.

My response to WritScrib, the newest attempt at a tumblr alternative (tl;dr - DW has 90% of the features already, would not implement 5% of them because they're bad ideas, and it would be far, far easier to add the extra 5% than reinventing the fucking wheel).

My additions to a conversation about fandom culture and history on social media and why you should use DW.

Basically I just want to shake people and scream 'DREAMWIDTH IS RIGHT FUCKING THERE OKAY'

(and now I'm going to try to calm down and go back to watching Nirvana in Fire and sewing)

Poor Internet, that can't remember what it has already done. Good writing, both of those, about the reasons why DW and AO3 came into being.
