Congratulations- Andy Adams

I'm not on Facebook, Twitter, etc- nothing ideological, just basically don't have the time with work, a blog (those quaint institutions not worth the paper they're not printed on), and trying to take a snap or two on occasion. My wife's on it though, and since we share a computer, I happened to mozy on over with a hem and a haw to take a gander at Andy Adam's new and supposedly improved goings on. I was never a big fan of flakphoto- although I often appreciated the work, I also found it somewhat repetitive (and in the interest of full disclosure, the fact that he would never consider posting one of my submissions even if I was one of the last five remaining photographers on earth, could never color my opinion in any manner whatsoever).

Congratulations! And continued success...

Clicking from a photo blog to "The Andy Adams Network" is like going from impulse power to warp speed! I really don't have a clear idea of half the shit he's doing there (and there's so many theres there, online, via Facebook, and beyond)- but hat's off to the guy for his commitment, energy and dedication. Like I said, I couldn't keep track of half of it- but his love of the medium, his desire to do right by it, and more importantly... to do right by the people who are interacting with the photographic multiverse he's created clearly shines through. This is the closest anyone's come to establishing a robust and comprehensive, online photographic arts community- a photographic resource for anyone interested in contemporary photography and everything involved in it, with it, around it. Undoubtedly the model for what an all out interactive photo site can and should be...
