I just found evolt on the 27th of last month and was so excited, I've been
looking for a web society just like this. I signed up for all the mail list
and so far have just been reading in the lists to get a feel for the
culture, the topics, etc... I'm a high school student and an aspiring web
designer with a number of years of piddling under my belt. I saw evolt as a
way to begin introducing myself into the arena of web business, and have
found the articles at evolt very informative and very helpful to an
individual hoping to find a job related to the web. Then come to find out
the "main man" behind evolt is up and leaving, and then this... that meo is
going to get the ax. I was very interested in getting a meo account, to get
experience with a database, with coldfusion, all the backend stuff, I've got
the front end down pretty well. So this is my plea and my offering, please
try to save meo, I would definitely be willing to contribute to help save
meo, and its evident I'm not the only one. Meo is such an amazing resource
that it is definitely worth trying to save in my book.

A stunned newbie,
Weston Renoud
