Has altruism failed?

Slow deterioration in quality and quantity, followed by a month of silence. Has our collaborative project failed?

In one sense, yes. No one was willing to sacrifice ego and give up their personal site for this one.

On the other hand, many people asked to be removed from the friends list because they felt their thoughts would be "too personal" or "too silly" to be included.

The real triumph of LiveJournal is that it allows collaborative selfishness. The friends page is a collection of individuals, given the illusion of cooperation.

In that spirit, I'm going to use my personal friends page as a clearinghouse for all the livejournals I follow.

I don't feel right using the Club23 page for that purpose, so I'll make myself the filter and see if anybody follows...
