So I’ve been rethinking the project quite a bit and what I want …I mean REALLY want from the project.
I’ve known since I started the project that I wanted it to be more than an oekaki and I think the issue was not knowing what kind of community I really wanted it to be. The new aim is going to be more like an online community center that focuses on a variety of creative outlets and while there will still be oekaki there will also be other studios for other creative outlets like writing, video, audio and possibly digital sculpting. The focus will be less social and more creative with a more open feel. I will also be including a partner. Micah Maloney from First Taste Multimedia will be joining the project.
I’ve actually worked with Micah quite a bit in the past and I’m very happy he’s part of the project moving forward as he’s been it’s greatest supporter for years. He’s a wonderful writer and also brings a lot of functional knowledge and experience in A/V to the project.
I’m hoping to have some more news on the bigger changes later this year after we’ve had a chance to really look at everything.
You can also check out Micah’s starter company First Taste Multimedia at http://www.firsttastemultimedia.com/ . They are producing some really promising projects right now and are worth a look!
Because the project is getting a whole new face I will be cleaning up a lot of things from the server. I will set up a new temporary board and for the time being this wordpress will be the homepage.
