I guess this is like the first commit of a new project. Where you create your perfect directory and a nice little README detailing the project and listing ideas... The difference being there are no projects to set up or build systems to configure..
So anyway, the reason I created an account here and a journal is because I want to become more active in communicating with other developers and designers. I currently only have one friend who I work and discuss with. Gamedev.net seems like a good place to do this.
