Nearly 1000 stories and one year after creation, we’re rolling along here at CDM. I’m on a weeklong vacation from major editing duties, though I hope to share an occasional dispatch in the meantime. After I get back November 18, some big developments will be coming here at CDM as we begin work on a ground-up redesign, site restructuring, and new features. (Including, yes, that long-overdue message board; get your trolling talents ready.) Later in the month, my book on making music with computers, Real World Digital Audio should be on shelves and available internationally. (Not sure on exact foreign dates, which a couple people have asked, but I’ll let you know.) I can’t wait to share both of these with you — but in the meantime, can’t wait to take in some sun with family and my significant other. See you real soon now!
