LiveJournal article in

Didn't notice this one before... it's an article from March 14, 2002 located here on a Russian website.

The title roughly translates into LiveJournal, the Magazine with a Thousand Lives", and it features emdin and avva talking about LiveJournal, it's features, advantages, etc. It covers the features of the site thoroughly, talks about communities, memories, groups, and the Russian version of the Semagic client for Windows.

It also covers other interesting features that have grown out of the large, active Russian community on LiveJournal, such as LJ-crush, a homebrewed matchmaking application for Russian LiveJournal users, where you indicate who you have a crush on and find out who has a crush on you. (The neat thing about this is that it's not like one of those evil commercial "Guess whose got a crush on you?" websites from hell. Boy I hate those things...)

Addendum! Make that two articles on LiveJournal in Russian! The second one is here! Haven't "read" it yet.

I also noticed that LiveJournal won three awards in POTOP - 2002, the Russian website awards, that were held on March 26th of this year. LiveJournal won for Literary Site of the Year, Interactive Site of the Year, and got a runner-up nod as best Foriegn Site of the Year... but since we're runners up to Google, that doesn't suck. It's really a testimony to how strong and active a Russian community we have on LiveJournal.

Anyone out there want to do a translation of this article these articles for future reference?!
