The end of an era…

For anyone that follows me on Twitter, or has any interest in the design/development area has probably heard of a pretty swell site called Forrst.

For those of you that don’t know, I loved Forrst. The direction that it was heading was brilliant, the users on it were equally great, and the feedback that I got & provided really sparked some thoughts over what you were doing etc.

Overall, the community helped me get to know some awesome people. People that I have had the pleasure of working with in the past, in the present - and as of earlier today, in the future (I hope).

One thing that was key in Forrst’s success, I think was that it was a simple, invite only community. The people wanting to get in had to have some skills, and some demonstration of them to show these skills off.

For the intuitive amongst you, you’ll probably realise that a lot of this post up till now has been in the past tense. Yes, unfortunately, Forrst is no longer what it used to be, and I feel that now it has tipped over the edge.
