LiveJournal, Inc is in the process of assembling an Advisory Board.
This board will have elected two members from the LiveJournal user membership.
The reasons leading up to this decision were based on my qualifications:
1) I have been an active user of LiveJournal for over 5 years. I established my account in October 2001.
2) I have been researching and developing in the technology area of "Social Networking" for about 20 years.
3) My net based experience actually goes back 30 years.
4) I am for the most part... sane
Interestingly, I don't consider myself the average user. But I consider myself a typical user.
If you have any questions, suggestions, reservations, etc... please feel free to ask.
Granted, there isn't a whole lot of details yet on the position or the election process. So... Once more information comes out, I will either elabourate or withdraw. My guess at this point will be that it will confirm what I believe they are looking for.
Okay.. that's my two cents. Back to work at the office.
