Communion Of Dreams


I’ve mentioned several times recently the ballistics project I’ve been involved with over the last year or so.  Well, last night we migrated the temporary site over to its own domain, and except for a few tweaks it is pretty much done.  Sometime probably this weekend I will post a comment promoting the site to a couple of the forums devoted to discussing firearms, and then all bets are off as to what happens next.  (I’d ask anyone reading this to not spread the word to such forums just yet – please let me do that when we’re ready.)

For those who are not interested or knowledgeable about firearms, this whole thing may seem a bit silly.  Actually, it is a huge project which will significantly add to the information base available to shooting enthusiasts, and as such will likely gain a great deal of attention both online and in the print media devoted to firearms.  I’ve cautioned my two cohorts in the project to be prepared for a bit of a whirlwind of interest.  I doubt that it will penetrate into the general media the way that my Paint the Moon art project did, but in the gun world it could very well be just as well known.

And the anticipation of that is kinda fun.  As private a person as I am by nature, I enjoy doing things which are interesting or innovative enough to gain some level of attention, to povoke people to think about something in a different way or to expand their awareness of what is possible.  I think that is a big part of the reason why I blog, and why I wrote Communion of Dreams – to help shape the world.  This new project will do that in a very tangible way.

So, we’ll see what happens.  Wish us luck with it.
