PSA: LiveJournal lays off nearly half of its SF employees

LiveJournal has laid off several of their employees in San Francisco (13 let go, 17 staying on seems to be the most reliable number I've heard), ostensibly to save costs by consolidating some of the functions in Moscow rather than having separate staff in Russia and the US.

This entry has a fairly good summary and links; if you haven't already, I encourage you to read at least the "onsite commentary" links.

While it seems that your journal is not in danger of going away anytime soon, a backup is always a good idea; a couple of the links in the "onsite commentary" have links to various backup methods, either in the entries or in their comments.
