Random Shapes Reunion

As you know the network has been sleeping for way too long and may never wake up but that doesn’t mean we can’t still have some fun.

To all Random Shapers:

Once upon a time on a Macbook far far away, a group of teenagers decided they needed to come together and fight for good adolescent blogging. Thus, Ranadom Shap–wait, is it coming back to you yet? The weeks without sleeping to stay up on IRC? The podcasts? The incentive to sit down at your keyboard and write?

Why let such fond memories go to waste, let loose and [re]live a little! All Random Shapers, you know that RS was always more than just a linked badge in your blog’s sidebar, it was a community of talented and intelligent young guys and gals (yes, that means you too). You’re more than cordially invited to our online 3.5 year reunion *party*. So stock up on Monsters and Red Bulls, it’s gonna be a pixelly bumpy ride!

Check out the Facebook Event for more info.

The Reunion will be on October 2nd from 8:05pm eastern time until 11:05pm (although knowing you guys it could go even later). The event will take place 3 years, 7 months, and 1 day after the network was initially launched on March 1st, 2006.

Looking back I can’t believe some of the things we accomplished. It wasn’t prefect and never became what I wanted it to but we had a pretty decent amount of participation and I personally truly enjoyed the community.

During the reunion I’ll show you some mockups of what I had in mind for the future of Random Shapes but never was. I really look forward to hearing how everyone is doing and I hope you’ll all join us.

Thanks to Bekka and Kevin for putting this together. The network was only ever successful when everyone helped and I’m glad that still continues today. I love you guys!
