So...

Its the last day of 2016, and with so much going on in my life, I choose to reactive my dreamwidth account, a place where I basically have no connections or history.

Why?

Because Facebook continues to be problematic. Beyond its personal annoyance for me, I think the "memeification" of Facebook, which later spread out to the culture on the whole, had some very negative consequences, including, obviously, the election of Donald Trump to the Presidency.

Livejournal, which I've continued to use for years, is somewhat doubtful because of its possible ability to be compromised by the Russian government.

Well, this is the world of 2016 2017 for you. And I want to adjust, because I want to be "the change I want to see in the world", and that change starts with finding better avenues of communication.

I completely agree with you about Facebook. I decided that I'm happier just not looking at it. And more intelligent, too, because every moment with Facebook open is a moment in which brain cells commit suicide out of despair.

Anyway, I'm a 58 year old Texas woman who also mostly writes about my life, though I also indulge in my fandoms since that was the whole reason I ever opened an LJ, and LJ's current situation is the whole reason I'm now on DW.
