    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.
