So, [personal profile] jenett is doing salon threads in her Dreamwidth account. Basically, get together and chat. If you're curious, have the FAQ for it.

I'm tempted to do the same or similar. Question is, would you participate if I did that and the topics I seeded it with, or the digressions others took it to, were of interest to you?

1) If I did it with comments open only on Dreamwidth? (OpenId and anonymous could be used to comment, remembering that any LiveJournal user can auth as OpenId there.)

2) If I did it with comments open only on LiveJournal? (OpenId, anonymous, Facebook, Twitter, Google, all could be used to comment. As well as a couple more services, but I think they're more common in Russia.)

I wouldn't want to leave comments open on both, because the idea is to create a set of discussions people can mix and mingle through, which is easier if they are all in one space.

I'm not sure I have the time or brain for this. I'm *quite* sure I don't have it this week, so now is a good time to ask y'all if it's worth trying to figure out if I can do it.

Probable day for starting them: Friday morning (Pacific time), because that's my usual day for things that need brain and typing time.

Is this of any interest to you? Please let me know.

I would be interested!

I note that I picked DW because the Expand-All for paid accounts is a pretty huge factor for me in keeping up with what's going on. (I mean, I get email comments, too, but being able to hit Expand All makes it easier to cross-reference, etc.)

I've also found (at least so far) that they take me being around when I get them started, and it helps to be near the computer to reply and make it be a conversation/etc. but that they are (so far) not taking a lot of work once they get going and get their own sense of orbit.

If it's next week... I will likely be too brainfried to participate. If it's sometime after next week, I might participate. I am slightly more likely to do so on DW, but only in that my reading list here is smaller so I tend to go through it faster. (On the other hand, I have more icon options on LJ.)

If the topics interest me, I would... best venue for me is here rather than DW.

I'd be happy to comment wherever you'd prefer. I'm trying to make DW my default blogging service, but it's hard at the moment. :( Anyway, if it's a topic I'm interested in, I will do my best to participate!
