This post originally appeared on Blogging Fringe and is in relation to that community site in particular, but I think it also applies to any community-driven site I will ever try to build.
OK, so I realised some time today that I alone cannot make all the videos, take all the pictures, do all the blog posts I want to do AND update the MySpace AND write reviews - I think I have 4 or more reviews I want to do, and they might never get the level of attention I think they deserve.
Let me start off by saying that it is so utterly amazing that Central Florida has groups with funding who can do stuff like this, and we wouldn't be where we are now without CFACA and UA. Love ya, mean it.
This weekend has been a wee bit crazy. I've been updating Blogging Fringe like a crazy person. No, really. There are almost 80 shows in the festival this year, and I've been attempting to copy and paste several lines of text for each one. I've also got Denna, Kate, Jamie and Emily volunteering to help out. Of course everyone is welcome.
I just finished thumbing through this week's edition of the Orlando Sentinel, and I've noticed a glaring omission: the Digg.com HD-DVD story. The New York Times didn't miss it, not by a longshot. The content is easily enough syndicated from them or the AP. Hell, this week's TWiT has "The Code" as the title of their show!
Here's the transcript from my interview with Omar de la Rosa for the Orlando Weekly. It went to print this week on page 30 - the cover story is "Spellbound".

By the time most of you read this, I will likely be on my way to the airport. I'm flying out on NorthWest (for the frequent flyer miles). Never flown with them internationally, we'll see. I am pulling out my passport at this very moment...right.
If you have friends in London, send them here to the blog and the comments on this post or the contact form, or MySpace.
If you're on Flickr, add me, I hope to be posting photos all along the way.
