Evolt.org originally arose to meet a need... that need has changed
and/or is met in other ways.

...  thank goodness we don't really need to view our designs on 10
different browsers anymore ...

In the end, what really mattered the most was not so much the exchange
of technical information, but the friendships that were forged.

That's how i see it, anyway.

I'm always up for helping with front end design/dev and/or writing.
