Throw off your shackles and be free! Or something.

Because I am a megalomaniac struck by inspiration (or something?), I
think it would be really cool for there to be a group VTES blog on
which people all over the world could post their tournament reports,
VTES travel stories, or just amusing ramblings.

Because it's all about the people.

Ambitiously, (perhaps overambitiously :-) I intend to at least try to
blog my own trip to Origins this year (starting tomorrow!) and
encourage anyone and everyone else to do the same (for Origins, GenCon
Indy, European qualifiers, the EC, and so on and so forth). Email me
if you would like to have an account added to this project:
jtduffin(.at.)gmail(.dot.)com.

You can see the very basic setup at

Play on!

I'm sure it will start out with "Well, my car broke down again..." but I
digress. ;)

You just watch yourself. I've got the death sentence on twelve
highways!

Already a correction?! Well, yes. The address is now
http://themadnessnetwork.blogspot.com, as it was pointed out that
remembering what kind of punctuation is in there becomes easier if
there is no punctuation.

Used to by hyphens, now it's nothing at all.

Still true: email me if you'd like to make blog entries!

I thought this was going to be a live blog, you know, with updates
after each day of Origins. I guess you plan to update it with Origins
goodness when you get back. Those of us too unfortunate to not be at
Origins will have to wait a few more days to hear anything I guess.

Later,

Yeah, I think Josh is just getting started so there's not likely to be
much at this first con. Also, as he gets more volunteers to write for
it, it should be updated more often. I think we'll see it setup for
audio reports in the future since those are so much easier to send in
while on location at the events.

If you want that, not to steal thunder, but there's this website done by
DJFengShui that I think updates quite frequently (sometimes even 4-5 times
a day):

Josh and I have each added an entry about Origins. Perhaps wireless
will be more available at GenCon, personally, I was too cheap to pay
$40 for access at our hotel for the weekend, and not hardcore enough to
lug the laptop along with decks to the convention center to see if they
had free wireless.
