DW x LJ?

lu: (Explanation)
After reading [livejournal.com profile] afterthree's post regarding Dreamwidth I got fairly curious about the whole thing.

I read their site, but I'm still not quite understanding what really differs DW from LJ. Can anyone enlighten me? Another question—who plans to get an account, and why? I'm seriously thinking about it.

You like bowling, don't you, Montag?

If you don't want a man unhappy politically, don't give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none. If the government is inefficient, topheavy, and tax-mad, better it be all those than that people worry over it. Peace, Montag. Give the people contests they win by remembering the words to more popular songs or the names of state capitals or how much corn Iowa grew last year. Cram them full of noncombustible data, chock them so damned full of 'facts' they feel stuffed, but absolutely 'brilliant' with information. Then they'll feel like they're thinking, they'll get a sense of motion without moving. And they'll be happy, because facts of that sort don't change. Don't give them any slippery stuff like philosophy or sociology to tie things up with. That way lies melancholy.
