SixApart Sells LiveJournal to Russian Media Company

SixApart tonight announced the sale of journal/blogging service Livejournal to Russia-based SUP. Original LJ founder Brad Fitzpatrick has chimed in on the situation: This is pretty cool because — They’re ridiculously excited about LiveJournal, and have been for awhile (they previous purchased advertising rights in Russia, but ended up doing a bunch of Russia-specific LJ development as well). They want to throw a lot of resources at LiveJournal in terms of product development and engineers. ‘LiveJournal.com, Inc’ now stands alone again, focusing on nothing but LJ. Sounds like I’ll have more LJ influence (via new role as advisory board member) than I’ve had recently — via Slashdot
