Yep...after two years or so of planning the site, I met with Johan Broberg, a games industry media guru at the time, and began the interview that led to people discovering CA. I had spent almost two years meeting artists and gathering the guys I liked whom I felt like should know each other. Two of which were coro and Andrew who came on in the following spring. We finally went fully live in April, but the seeds were planted the day I announced CA in my interview after two years of thinking about it and never getting around to it. Johan was a major reason CA even got started. Not only did he provide the initial traffic interest with his article, but he helped us put up the forums, skin them, and supported and volunteered here for the first two years. There are good people in this world. There are a lot of great people here. I feel very lucky.
I want to thank you all for being here with us, for learning with us, and for caring and growing up together.
Happy eighth CA. May this be your best one yet.
