metafilter material. Could have been good discussion on expansion of the community utilitarianism of 'blog' type tools.

Agreed, Rich. This would have been better in MeFi. However it is logical why Owillis would have thought it better where he put it. Had he thrown it up on MeFi, it's possible someone would have complained that it's too journal related and belonged where he did put it. So maybe it's one of those damned if ya do damned if ya don't kinda things.

It's not necessarily new information. Oprah's website's had this journal function for several months now. I signed on out of curiosity last fall just to see what she was up to, but was quickly disappointed in the lack of functionality.
