What we know about LiveJournal …

- LiveJournal is extremely popular in Russia;
- some of the opinions by Russian bloggers on LiveJournal aren’t to the liking of Putin’s “siloviki” (ex-KGB, now FSB people);
- president Medvedev is an avid user of LiveJournal; and most importantly
- whilst it seemed years ago that Medvedev is just a body keeping the presidential seat warm until Putin can return this doesn’t seem to be
the case anymore.

And that other news from Russia
makes it clear that at least one side is positioning itself for information supremacy as part of overall supremacy. Or, put it in
different terms: one side is playing on its strengths: attack data, the
other side is going after altering perceptions and the change of
environment.

Of course I could be completely wrong. :-)
