P1080239 Marta Gossage
Marta Gossage, a LiveJournal community manager, who I ran into randomly, when she sat down to recharge her phone at the same wall outlet where I was charging my computer. (At SXSW and other geek events, charging your devices is what walking dogs is to the mainstream world -- it provides icebreakers, pick-up opportunities, and overall brings community together.) Anyway, as someone who's used LiveJournal for years, I was quite pleasantly surprised to meet someone who could answer some of my burning questions regarding LJ (for example, lack of backup utilities). She was a very nice and knowledgeable person, and told me a thing or two about LJ technical infrastructure, but I can't really post them here because for all I know they might be confidential.
