The revolution will be online

You know I’m amazed. This site is actually succeeding in bringing together creative Australians from all over the planet. And probably a few aliens too.

A while back I had a little forum going on Myspace. The aim was to hook up Aussie writers. It was fairly popular. Then I mentioned RedBubble. Ever since the forum has been silent. But I’ve recognised some of the forum members popping up on RedBubble. Coincidence? Nah.

Rents are rising. Many creatives can no longer afford to live in the traditional ‘arty suburbs.’ Physical networks are fragmenting. But this site has the power to keep everyone in touch, hooked up, on the level, inspired, and aware of just how much (how much???) talent is out there.

Brings a tear to me eye, it does.
