Over in the "predictions" thread, someone wrote:
"The indie games community will continue to lack a clear online center in the vein of the Forge before 2007 or SG in years past. Twitter and G+ will be the way, making it harder for new people to plugin except through local face-to-face communities."
I found this to be a very interesting observation.
When I was looking for alternative ways of thinking about RPGs, I was able to find and read Usenet (rec.games.frp.misc, I believe it was) and then Forge and Story Games.
Is it possible that so many of these conversations are now moving to social media that a person in my position today is out of luck? You can no longer simply browse and search; now you have to know the right people?
If so, that's a very interesting (and potentially unhappy) development.
What do you think?
