+1 to rss feed concept, makes life a lot easier in a heterogeneous
I'm still catching up on email so apologies if this has been mentioned
already. But the UI for marking of entries as sharable does not
necessarily need to be another Journal user-interface addition** In
the simplest approach you could just extend the Activity "Share with:
my Neighbourhood" control to mark a Journal entry as part of the RRS
feed. Would need some thought on wording, do you add more levels of
sharing? Or do you just simplify the "Share with:" language language
to "Private", "Share with: Anyone".
**though I would like entries to visually show their sharing state,
the buddy column hints at this but should be made explicit
