Wow, this maybe the longest stretch without any new material to date! But, most assuredly it hasn’t been because I have haven’t been working. For the past month, I’ve been gearing-up for a return to school. Apparently, there are several people out there that believe that I just might be artistically inclined. As such, I’ve chosen (what I believe to be) the best college in the field. Full Sail University has an amazing Online Education program and an even better track record in creating multi-award winning creative professionals. I’m currently pursuing a Bachelors of Science Degree in Graphic Design. And (if all goes well) I should be done in 29 months.

But what does all this mean for E82?

Well, I believe that this (very young) website has the potential to become something truly special and maybe, just maybe, influence a change in the way we not only treat Epcot, the park but also help eliminate the Retro in Retro Futurism. There is still a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow… YES even in Today’s technology inundated era. Among other things, I believe the challenge of Tomorrow is no longer technological, if the last 30 years have proved anything it’s that “We Can Do It.” But now that we’re super-connected with mini-computers in palm of hand what do we do now? Well I think the biggest frontier of this century will be moving from Information and Data to one of Wisdom, Maturity, and Responsibility. These are all lesions I have learned from EPCOT Center, and insights I hope to continue to share with you for a long, long time. In short, E82 is also My Legacy.

After completing my first week’s assignments in two days and with an extra day off for classes each week, I feel quite positive that E82 will continue at a fair pace. So it is my hope that as I continue my intellectual evolution, E82 will continue its evolution as well.


Coming Next Week
