Software old and new, part 1: Dreamwidth

Having noticed this morning that my Dreamwidth account had expired and gone back to Free, I just re-upped. I'm not using it significantly yet, but I still very much approve of the project and would like to see it succeed.

But it does remind me to ask: which of my friends are actually using DW actively? I want to make sure my reading list covers at least all the people I'm actively following on other social networks, and if more of my friends were posting there, I might well pay it more regular attention. I think I only know of two who are posting there, but I may be missing folks.

(For those coming in late: DW is most easily thought of as a good alternative to LiveJournal, currently in beta. They started with LJ's open-source software, and have been enhancing it at a pretty good clip. Frankly, they have both a better attitude towards their customers and towards the software itself than LJ does these days, and care more about doing a really good job. I'm still mainly focused on LJ because that's where the bulk of my friends are, but I do think DW will eventually be the better system, and may already be...)
