AN ALARMING ITEM TO FIND ON YOUR FRIENDS LIST

LiveJournal lays off substantial number of employees without severance (various estimates of numbers, but roughly half the thirty staff seems right - summary here).

Fortunately, there is a good choice of software for backing up your journal:

  • ljArchive (Windows only, archives entries and comments)
  • ljmigrate (needs python, archives entries, comments and userpics)
  • ljdump (needs python, archives entries and comments)
  • LJBook (produces PDF of your LJ, currently overwhelmed)
  • LiveJournal Backup (Windows only, archives entries and comments)
  • LJSM (needs perl, archives entries, comments, memories, userpics, other images)
  • jbackup (needs perl, archives entries and comments)
  • XJournal (OS X only, GUI-based, archives entries only
  • LiveJournal Export (month by month as XML, archives entries only)

This is a cybernetic datum for the public good.

Thanks for the heads up.

This is all most alarming, I use LJ because it adds to my life with little charge in return. The most immediate alternates, Myspace and Facebook are too dire to consider.

Blogging and community life are too good to give up.
