On the True Nature of... Collaboration?

Notice anything missing?

What started out as a recap of several conversations about religion (entitled "On the True Nature of God and Man") has taken on a life of its own.

Originally slated to be a brief four-part series (that I'd planned to have wrapped up by now), it has now grown to over a hundred pages of raw material - and we aren't anywhere close to being done. There are now eight of us (of varying beliefs and non-beliefs) working on the project, and we're constantly butting heads, but so far our collaboration is bearing fruit.

We haven't decided on a medium yet - we may present the project as a blog or website, we may publish it as a book, a video, or podcast, we're not sure. However, one thing is certain...

It won't be appearing here.

That's right - Conceit and Sociopathy's first (and likely only) meaningful subject has been removed from the bills, and it's business as usual from here on in. It was my decision to pull the plug out of respect for the others' contributions - a serious discourse on religion seemed a tad out of place on a blog about old computers, alcohol, and questionable behaviour.

That said, I deleted the original post from C&S. It'll appear in the finished piece (regardless of medium) as the opening.

In any case, I'm back to blogging on a semi-regular basis.

We now return you to our regularily scheduled program.
