LiveJournal set to roll out "sponsored content?" Does anybody know anything about this?

Just what the article says. Plus they have been discussing it on lj_biz but I haven't had a chance to read up on it yet.

So it would seem. And they seem to have hit the ground running.

I read in last month's Wired that more than half of all blogs are bot-generated spam blogs. This drop of shameless hucksterism in a vast sea of same shouldn't bother me that much, but bother me it does.

I refuse to whore my blog to ads. I may not always maintain that insistence, but right now I have no reason to sell out for a few extra icons.

Namaste.

Insomnia wrote about it in this entry:

And here's the first community I know of:
http://community.livejournal.com/scienceofsleep/

Feels like an infection to me. :-(

corporate sock puppets
Just read the littany of betrayal and anger on the Scienceofsleep community. Yeah, I think I'm down with the boycot. Hopefully Wal*Mart won't try to buy in. I'd be hard pressed to carry through on a threat to never shop there again. I certainly won't be seeing Science of Sleep (not that it will play anywhere near here and not that I've seen a movie in the theater since Revenge of the Sith.)
