What is Danga?

Danga Interactive was Brad Fitzpatrick's company (1998 ~ 2007) that developed LiveJournal and by necessity the backend software to drive it all. Danga was sold to Six Apart, LiveJournal was re-sold to SUP, Six Apart was acquired by SAY Media. This domain now exists just for old Danga employees' personal use, and to not break links.
