So many open ends

Posted: 2019-04-08 in Uncategorized

I’ve been posting dozens of articles over the past few weeks, digesting tons of information in a way that I can only hope makes sense.  I still have a lot more to go, as the online skate community surrounding Silverfish was near and dear to my heart, and this is my own way of recording the data for posterity.  Many of the articles I’ve posted thus far have been simple copy/pastes.  I’ve taken the luxury of adding some personal narration, and clarifying some of my more ambiguous points.  Hell, some of my reviews, as they were posted, were done at such an early phase of me owning whatever piece of gear it was, that my long-term experiences turned out vastly different from what I had posted.

But, I’m at a bit of an impasse:  I still have a lot of information left to be posted, but it’s a little more complex and complicated than just copy/pasting.  One topic I’m exploring is the history of longboarding itself.  I’ve got 3 different articles and threads saved onto my Google drive with 3 very different perspectives on the beginning and roots of longboarding.  It’s going to take a bit of effort and corroboration to present a healthy, full idea of longboarding’s history and roots; the movers and the shakers of industry and how and why they did the things they did.  Another topic deals with Silverfish itself.  I’ve, again, got 3 or 4 different articles and threads on the history of that website and community at large.  Much in the later history of the site is purely conjecture, but I’ve got a few dates of major events (website servers moving, site ownership changing, membership milestones, etc.).

There’s a lot of avenues to take, and perhaps most importantly, I’m shooting for Post 100 on this blog sometime soon, while maintaining a posting streak of longer than a week.
