drive-by journal usage meta

There's all this talk about whether or not DreamWidth is a fannish journaling service, and demographics, and whatever. I wasn't sure what to think, and then I had the following experience: see that there's an xkcd feed, and that the navstrip was giving me a "see most popular feeds" option. Look at it. XKCD was currently at number one.

Number 2 was fandom wank, number 3 was the OTW newsfeed, and Henry Jenkins was in the top 20 (#16).

Yeah, the demographics are demographic-y.

On the other hand, maybe I'll finally start reading Jenkins's feed. Hmm.

ETA: and yes, this is me testing out cross-posting just to make sure it works.

ETA 2&3: I just looked at my UIDs (setting up LJ-login to work with DW) and I have a higher UID on DW than LJ, and that was still during CLOSED BETA. WTF that's a lot of accounts, though if OpenID accounts count, that might do it. And the mood has nothing to do with the content of this post and everything to do with my neck muscles.

I apologize to anyone reading this who does not care about DreamWidth; I'm mostly in it for the meta, as usual. I like watching people migrating like geese and honking strangely as they make aerodynamic shapes against the sky. Or, er, something like that.
