It seems times are changing. About 15 years ago Shannon Larratt started something called BME, which some of you may know. This eventually flourished into the current and ever popular modblog, over the last few years. Today Shannon announced that he will be relinquishing his part ownership and handing it over to his ex-wife, Rachel, in it's entirety.
I wish Shannon all the luck in the world in whatever he decides to do, and to thank him for what he's done for the modification culture. His work has certainly helped to shape a significant part of my beliefs over my recent years. The people I have met have been amongst the kindest, the politest and the most social people I've had the good fortune to deal with, and I only hope that with his absence that things continue.
