Pinboard creator on the site and fandom: OMG SO WELL INFORMED AND LOVELY!! (via [livejournal.com profile] innocentsmith)

"Fan culture is extremely collaborative, and its participants had rapidly taught one another how best to combine LiveJournal, Delicious and other sites into an network for sharing and discovery that, due to the social stigma of the hobby, remained under the radar even though it would have meant instant success for any entrepreneur sincerely willing to work with them. ...[Fanculture] reminds me a lot of what HyperCard was like in the nineties, right before its demise, when a large number of otherwise non-technical users had basically taught themselves to do elaborate programming with the tool, and were doing amazing things with it. Until, of course, Apple pulled the plug."
