Welcome to! (and a special welcome to viewers of ITV's This Morning!) The main two features of BG.N are the journals, which you see before you, based off the code, and the BG.N forums (which is home to most of the community activity). They require separate accounts, I'm sorry, but there isn't much I can do about that for now (although they can be the same name, for ease of use). I hope you find the peace of mind and affirmation that you're seeking. You're not alone, and we're here for you. Don't have or don't want a journal? Join us in the BG.N forums!

What is BGNJ?

BGNJ is a neighborhood (if you'll pardon the hackneyed metaphor) composed of personal journals and group communities. It arose out of a desire by Brin to give the users of the Forum the ability to get more out of bg.n. I hope it grows well beyond that.

Anyone can create a journal and set whatever privacy level makes them most comfortable. All people are welcome here with the understanding that everyone on here is a person and that they should be treated no differently than you would if you were sitting across the table from them. Abuse will not be tolerated, but disagreements, even heated ones, will occur.

The code for this site is really dense and confusing, despite many months of working with it, so there are a lot of bugs still, I know. Please do notify Brin of what you find and how you found it. Thank you!

I can not be anywhere near as hands-on here as I have been on the forum because BGNJ is (hopefully going to be) a much more sprawling, open place where people will find and form their own networks. That doesn't mean I won't be responsive, it just means I expect everyone to be a grown-up. Please make yourself at home :D
