The 2005 Snapshot Site.

I'm calling it the 2005 Snapshot now, but before that it was Interview Week and Pimp Your Shit Week. It is, however, now collected and held here. There's some new material to read, because I wrote an introduction, and the authors provided a few new links and images.

So, if you're interested in chasing them down, there you go.

The week netted over a thousand unique hits, with just under three thousand all up. For something decided on the night before it began, it worked out pretty well, I think.

Won't happen again.

What I saw as the beginning of something fun and neat did turn into a rather interesting series of interviews and ended up a rather regionally significant project.

Well done Ben.

Don't blame you for saying never again, but something like this every few years would be cool indeed.

it did become a bit more significant that i imagined it would. time will tell if it lingers in the minds of poeople.

the thing is, this kind of thing could be done by anyone. doesn't need me to do it. it might even benefit from having someone different do the interviews in a couple of years, if it was to continue in that fashion.

I thought it was cool of you to do it. My uncle, who was a cook in the navy, always used to say "a high tide raises all ships." And it was good of you share your little sliver of the internet world to try and raise the water for all the boats.

i guess only time will tell about how much the water got rose. i figure things'll just continue on the same.
