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.
