Too much is never enough…

connectingpeopleToday, it’s already 3 years that i started the adventure of NCI. I’ve never realised to pass so many time in his construction. I prepared nothing to this special day, no video, no photos, no new version of website, no banner, no new design: just this simple post with my bad english writing inside.

Forest Gump
I’ve to admit that 2007 was a bonus year. i though really to stop all in february: at this time, i though to contribute only to the official FBS forum but the hacking of this last openned new directions: developpment of the blog. I won’t resume the 2007’s year, you have to go to the archive and see that i posted alot, you saw the evolution (anti-spam, design..) , lot of you follow me daily.. (a strange image come to me: i’m feel like “Forest Gump“: i run i run and you follow me lol ) . It’s very strange to be a driver of a little community ..( i should use the word “family”).

FND, “the big head”?
So for once time, i could have the “big head” but not.. Of course, i’m proud and very happy to see that you like my work (for me it’s not a work). The blog is a result of the dead official forum, observations, frustrations and evolution of internet.
I’m a from oldschool internet so the adaptation is difficult for me. it’s crazy how all change. The more info we have on google, the more they are uninteresting!, it’s start to be boring when we search after infos to filter all the links, commercial, no infos.. its ask more and more time to find THE exclusive info. Sometimes i’m near to stop all but finally i continue… 30 minutes by days, it’s the average time i pass to purpose you the topics. (I have in my hands, more 5 years of archive too..) Maybe, i posted too much but in fact i note all that i found each day ’cause search motors are capricious… In add i’m am helped by some of you ;) . The blog is finally all that we like: FBS style, FBS music, FBS friends, Electronic Music.. so how i could stop that? This is why this blog is special and unique. It’s made for and by people who like sharing, discussion, fatboy slim, fbs fans… that’s all, no need to explain. People who like stay in it and the other who hate.. leave it (or they are banned by me lol, yeah it’s cruel but obliged for the survey of the site).
The future of
The static part of the website won’t evolve, even if i’m working on the update of the Fatboy Slim discography, that’s all (more 200 pages to update and correct! .. ), you’ll see the result in few days. I think to continue blogging.. try to find exclusives infos. And something tell me that 2008 will be an interesting year: new fbs* album (*not sure that it will be released under the fbs alias) , new tour, maybe new sets, probably new mixes… There will be certainly a new official fbs website for the out of the new album.. but i don’t think that they will install a new forum ’cause today it’s more the era of “web 2.0” = blogs, myspace & co. Anyway, after all the liberty i took with the fnd’s notebook, i definitively doesn’t want to start again a carreer of admin/moderator in any new forum.

I hope see new redactors in the blog in 2008 ;)
