What a long, strange trip it's been...

What a long, strange trip it's been... Okay... So, where are we off to now? Hrmmmm... always the tough question here. Lessee... we've done the forums, more or less, and we're still doing them. And they're still doing us. ;] We did a quick turn in the galleries. We did a "beginner's guide to Renderosity", and we'll go back to that one as we move along also. We've interviewed contributors, and moderators, and admins, and forum wolves... and we'll do a few more of those as we go also. Heh... got a few in the works that I just haven't quite gotten to yet. So much stuff... so little time. All pretty quiet in the forums right now [thank gods. ;)], so... maybe it's time to review a bit. So far, when I look over the course of this trip... we've gone from "Who is this idiot writing the articles", to Renderwars, to the Tavern, to the highlights of the new forums coming up. We've covered a bit of history, speculated on future possibilities, done a few scathing looks at how we act on occassion, and a few humorous ones also. ;] And they's still tons of stuff we've never gotten to yet. Tons of people also. I'll bet just covering the ongoing chronicle of this one website in depth could be a lifetime avocation if we let it be... And that's kind of neat - it's not a static history yet. We're continuing to write the chronicles as we go by the things we do and say everytime we log in here. It's strange to browse the archives of the various forums, and to read the words and arguments of people who are no longer posting with us... even stranger to read and realise that one day a few years from now, someone will read the things we say in there and wonder: "just who were these people, anyway?" Realising that the things we do today will be the archives of tomorrow... I know that when I first wandered in here, I never imagined this place would become such a central focus for me as it has been. Or that one day I'd be sitting here at my keyboard writing about the trip. Well... no matter what, we've still got the tour bus. And we'll continue to pile into it on occassion and wander about finding things to make us stop and go: 'Hey! Lookit that!" And maybe snicker a bit at the forumites... Later...
