LiveJournal's syndication (RSS, RDF) is much improved from the last announcement. You can now add your own RSS feeds and see other popular feeds:

Apologies for the slowness. If you missed one of the recent news updates, we'd ordered new machines, got them, and they were all dead. We returned them to the vendor and ordered from somebody else.

When that's all in (assuming it works, but it should), then we'll be good.

This also means that people can read your journal via an RSS reader if they wish, or republish your content somewhere else.
