it'll probably be a coupla days until I can do that -- my day job is getting Movable Type 4.0 launched right (yay! it's great! and it's gonna be open source soon, so we can even share stuff between MT and LJ) and assuming that all goes smoothly (HAH!) then i'll circle back with the LJ team and pass on what you've told me.
until then, my favorite LJ post of late is my friend and coworker lisa's post about bradfitz leaving Six Apart. Lisa's the oldest-school member of the LJ team, and i found her post really thoughtful and moving.
