This is for any GG members who are also on Model Mayhem. I came across a item on the internet yesterday that indicated that Model Mayhem is being sold yet again.

Tyler, the original creator of Model Mayhem sold the site a few years ago because it had gotten to big for him to handle plus there was (and still is) a lot of infighting among the Mods there and he was tired of it so he sold the site to Bob Brisco and Internet Brands and the nose dive began.

Pop some popcorn, get a cool drink, buckle your seatbelts, and enjoy the entertainment because with those guys the fun just never ends.

Believe it or not IB also owns the company that makes this forum software. I'm testing the new GG system, as we move to something better, and I will have something for you to look at hopefully shortly as I'm testing it on another domain. I might add, there is a great article called, "The Web is Dead" in the current issue of Wired. That may give you some great insight on what is happening to the Web, including why you see such activity from the folks at IB's that bought MM. Notice, facebook is so good and not one forum on that site? Food for thought, have to run, rg sends!

As Phoebe Buffet was fond of saying: "this is new information!!"

Thanks for sharing Rolando and keep us advised as to the rollout.

I still don't like Facebook..... And I don't really follow blogs, either.

I agree. There seems to be a multitude of places to spend (or waste) your time on the internet. What?... Facebook, Twitter, myspace, and I am sure many others.

I am not certain how much time a person can spend trying to keep up with people on all those, but I am too busy to do so.

It really irritates me when I see someone say something like... "to keep up with this (whatever they are discussing), go to my FB page, because I am making all the updates there."

I don't want to, or have time to run all over the place to see what someone is talking about.

I suppose that is what happens to a person when they get old and are still operating a studio 5 days a week, and still enjoying it.
