I'm more obsessed with the goals for NG as a website in 2009, but with the increasing number of really cool meet-ups, it feels imperative that NG as a social scene (dare I say LIFESTYLE?) must continue to evolve.
So in addition to NG's grand utopian vision revealing itself this year, here is a second goal I'm setting for 2009: The NG office is housed in a two story warehouse where we work on the second floor and store Penicorns and Tankmen on the first. I want to finally clean up (montage!) the first floor, spruce it up within reason, drywall the back wall and paint a giant mural that surrounds a big blank white box for projecting movies and games.
The first official unveiling would be when we announce the nominees for Best of 2009, via webcast (preferably NG Chat but more likely Stickam) and stream it all from the first floor venue. We'd fly out some popular artists and nominees, have a cocktail hour and then watch the nominees on the big screen.
So that's the goal; I've written it out, which makes it more likely to be achieved. We'll see in one year!
