‘Morning, everyone…a few announcements: First, we have taken down the UIGUI comment system for now. Although it was nice (thanks for everyone’s input) it was unreliable, as many free things are these days. We’ll try to replace it—email us if you have any bright ideas. Second, we’ll be posting new art later today (hooray!). Third, we are currently re-thinking exactly how OS Gatherings will manifest themselves in the future. You may have noticed that it’s been a while since we’ve updated that portion of the website. Well, frankly, it became too much work to handle while Rose and I were slaving our way through two years at Cornell.

Now that graduate school is complete, and over the course of the next several weeks, we’ll be making some long-overdue refinements to the website. We hope you enjoy them, and we hope they make our lives a little more manageable. Remember, we’re not web people here—the internet (small “i,” I insist) is not anywhere near the center of our focus or interest. We simply use it because it’s a good medium.

It’s sometimes hard to keep up with people who spend all day on the internet, because we don’t. We’ll sure try to keep our comments interesting and thoughtful, however we can’t assure you our thoughts will always be nice. We reserve the right to be didactic, and you should too. You can trust that we’ll never lose our desire or ability to think critically (and cynically) about this beautiful, nonsensical world. Unfortunately, we can’t promise that we’ll always be able to link to our observations.
