Linking to other LJ sites
Short, concise description of the idea
The ability to link users on other LJ based sites into my friends list.
Full description of the idea
It would be fantastically cool to link to a variety of people on different livejournal sites. It would mean, of course, that my LJ ID would be firstname.lastname@example.org (which is also an email address, and could be used as a Jabber ID if LJ wanted to set up a jabber server). There's no reason there couldn't be an interop standard between journals, meaning that all Journals would belong to one big journal world! (goes off to take a cold shower)
