WOW Framer
It seems to be a self-fulfilling prophecy that if people stay away
and don't support shows, or magazines, or whatever it is, then
those venues and publications will either have to morph or die.
The old adage, 'Don't put all your eggs in one basket' still has
the ring of truth to it, though, and having everything eventually
move online just reeks of vulnerability.

To my way of thinking, even the Grumble itself has an effect
on the way that framers network and learn new information.
I love it, and wouldn't want it to be any other way, but it's
pretty much a given that such amazing connectivity has
had an affect on how they support these other options.

It's up to everyone to think about how they want this
industry to look in five years. If we want something to
stay around, we need to support it. If we're willing to let
it fade away, then we need to think about what will stand
in their place to fulfill the same functions once they're
gone.

Pat K. has written at length here about her concerns on
this subject. It would be easy for someone to think she's
beating a dead horse, but that's far from the truth. These
are vital concerns to her and everyone like her, people
who still need to find ways to show their products. And to
us, who need to continue learning what's out available out
there.

Peter's comments are timely food for thought, as well.
