Part ONE: an audience outside the NMA world......exists

Posted by Jason Nelson | Mon Sep 11th 2006 2:10 a.m.

All,

I've spent much of the last six months exploring an audience outside
the NMA world. And damnit, there is one, a strong one. One filled with
millions of users who want to see and play with our work. Sure you expose
yourself to lots and lots of wtf?! in message boards and such. But even
in my own misdirected, blind attempts I've had much success in
getting hundreds of thousands to play with my wacked out work.

Hell..sadly I get more intelligent feedback from that outside audience then
I do on these lists. Dont misread that...I love this community and there are
heaps of damn fine and generous folks on here, but really there might be only
50 active participants.

Personally I see this as two roads. I still send work to the various calls that
crop up, but I also release my work out into the public arena via various methods.

In another e-mail I'm going to list some suggestions and if anyone wants to join
me then just send me an off list note.

cheers, Jason
