One thing that has me excited is a new project for gamedev.net. We've been working on it for a few months now and I'm convinced that it is by far one of the coolest projects we have ever undertaken. Not only is it cool in and of itself, but it sets a stage to implement a bunch of ideas that even some forum members have tossed around.
I've sworn off giving away details so that the hype machine doesn't become overwhelming.. and most moderators aren't fully aware of the scope of this project yet either. So for now it stays a secret.. but it's not that much longer. =)
I'd recommend getting GDNet+ if you don't have it yet.. yeah, yeah.. I'm plugging the subscription service, but I promise you'll want to be a member *before* we launch it. If you were still on the fence about it, at least sign up for a 3 month subscription.. it's pretty cheap as is and helps us to keep doing cool things.
