However, something else has transpired. Whether it was the IRCs, the meetups, #grubski, 103 #weeklymusicthreads, #pubski, or just a critical mass of comments and posts, many of us interact in ways that transcend Hubski itself.
Spot-on. Hubski has been an interesting place because of that, I feel like a know a lot of you personally despite never having met many of you. Even though most people here are usernames and text at face value I feel like it goes well beyond that, into the realm of caring about each other and community.
Which likely explains why there's so much advice and life-lessons, anecdotes, and all that being given on a near-daily basis. Along with explaining why it takes time for people to become used to Hubski.
Happy end of 2014 everyone, looking forward to seeing who joins in 2015, participating in more Pubski/Weeklymusic/maybe Grubski (those are a bit intimidating) and whatever else is in store around here for 2015. Hoping to meet more of you too!
...and looking forward to getting some of those stickers because I love them. Thanks for the hard work to everyone that keeps this site running and evolving.
