Still no FOTR pics up…ok, just one

This week has been very very busy…today, I am building a graveyard and poker game between a skeleton and a severed hand (and it isn’t every day I can say something like that!), so there’s been no time to go through all the pics I’ve taken to get some posted. (Heck, I haven’t yet had the time to process all of the high-def digital video I shot. Ok, other than the Dave Warren Players’ version of Blondie, in which I have something of a vested interest. ;)

Truth is, though, there isn’t as much need for me to do it anymore. There was a time I was the only person at the convention to carry a computer with me, and the first to use digital photography (actually used 1600-speed film but had the film digitally scanned at processing time). Nowadays, everyone and their dog has a digital camera even in their telephone, and access to some face-thing or other faux-website, so my pics have less relevance.

That said, some of you have been very kind to ask if I was going to get anything up, suggesting I might be a bit more selective than others who just dump the contents of their memory card, so for those nice folks I will be getting pics posted as soon as I can.

Further downrange, I will be posting about all the rumors swirling about the future of FOTR. No, I have no “inside information,” nothing that others didn’t hear at the same time at the mini-committee meeting, but I do hear a lot of the rumors and talk with a lot of the committee members, and so have some personal opinions about everything I’ll be posting later. If nothing else, it’ll give certain folks the opportunity to take more cheap shots at me… ;)

Edit: Scratch that; it’s been pointed out to me that there are plenty of photos from the FOTR convention available elsewhere, and my time can be better spent promoting the hobby in other ways. I am also reconsidering the post regarding the future of the FOTR convention, since it may just be a self-indulgence I should avoid. –cfs3

    Hey – the contents of my memory card include most of the people who were at the convention. It’s about community.

    Ah, but you make my point for me. If everyone now has a digital camera and can just dump the memcards to some large impersonal web area (Face-whatever, Flick-ing, etc.) without spending any time actually working on it or even thinking about it, why should I spend my time choosing, cropping, captioning, and posting photos here? Frankly my time can be much better spent, especially since there is only a tiny number of folks who have expressed any interest whatsoever. So I’ll leave it to you and others who know better than I do about “community,” or at least what it is “about,” and spend my time more productively elsewhere within the hobby.
