Thank You/Really, One Year Already?

​Wow, how time flies.

I feel like it was just yesterday that Simon came up to me and said something along the lines of "Hey, you know that shit we always talk about doing, but never really do? Well lets actually do it." Probably paraphrasing slightly there. Just a bit. Anyways, after that fateful (if not entirely memorable) conversation we set hard to work, setting up what would be our very first Com-cast. And the rest, as they say, is history. 23 episodes, a whole ton of Short-takes, and a couple Mindshares and Synoptic Sitreps later and here we are, still chugging right along with even more to come.

However, none of this would have been possible without you, the fans. Without your constant support, comments, contributions, and downloads we would never be where we are today. Without the seemingly never ending comments (I think we are yet to go a post without a comment or discussion in some form, something I am particularly happy about and proud of for our first year) we might have lost heart and fallen into the same hole as so many small projects before us. Its a hard thing putting yourself out there for people to judge, even when you can't directly see them, but the support y'all have given to us has made it so much easier. Because we know we have people who want more, we want to make more, and it is what inspires us to keep creating and thinking of ideas each and every day.

So there it is, one year done.

Enjoy the plethora of today's content and look forward to the future. We have established that we aren't going away anytime soon so now its time to go somewhere. Bigger and better seems to have a certain ring to it. Thanks everyone.

I still remember when I listened to the first episode. I was on the train on my way back home from Berlin, hoping that at least the ComCast might help me get over the time between 2chimps episodes.

It turned out to be a great surprise and ever since I've been checking the site several times a day just to see if maybe another Comcast was up.

Congrats on your first year and keep up the great work.

Jumping Jehoshaphat! You're 1. This really puts a years' time in context doesn't it. I feel like it's only been a few weeks you guys have been at this. I first jumped onboard not with the Com-cast, but with the Short-Takes. It's been a microcosm of the larger picture of what you guys are doing; expanding with more contributors and always providing that same great analysis. Here's a virtual champagne, maybe I'll send you one for 2 years?

Nice! I know that it does seem to be the same group of commenters week in and week out, but as you said in a podcast before, that's a phenomenon with any project, even WGG. I hope that core expands this year and in years to come.
