10 X 10: A History of deviantART
Proud to be a deviant? This history belongs to you. Is it long? You bet it's long-- ten years in the making long, told by ten of the deviants who built deviantART and kept it alive. So brew up a fresh pot, print up some pages, and sit down to the story of the decade…
matteo (co-founder, deviantART): I was eighteen when deviantART first opened its doors. I was so young and naive. I had this idealistic vision of an online community of artists, coming together to promote creativity and the freedom of expression. We had no idea that it would actually succeed beyond our wildest dreams.
jark (co-founder, deviantART): At the time deviantART was conceived, I was living in Chiba, Japan. I had been working on websites for a few years and was actively brainstorming ideas for a new website. My main experience up through that point had been in the MP3 scene; I worked on a site called CyberTropix, briefly ran a skin

Not out of the woods: A silent epidemic persists
As many of you know, I have struggled with lyme disease for a long time, having been in remission from chronic late stage Lyme and recently relapsing. I have decided at long last to make a concerted effort to spread the word about the disease in the best way I know how: bitching online!
I'm going to give you the skinny on this nasty bug, as well as point you in the direction of more thorough, official information on the topic should you wish to learn more.
Lyme was only discovered in 1975 and was named for Lyme, Connecticut where a cluster outbreak was found and the disease is said to have "been discovered." The truth of the matter is that it's likely some form of Lyme disease (or Borreliosis as it is scientifically known) has existed for some time. It is in the same family of bacteria as syphilis, known as spirochetes and identifiable by their corkscrew shape. This cute little slinky of a microbe can be deadly, in part due to its screw-like form which renders it skilled at tunneling i

I don't know BT personally, but...
... I think he is a remarkable musician, a true innovator, a gifted individual that knows the difference between style and substance, a visionary that can push both to the limits if he so desires... if you were to just sit down and listen to his music, watch what he has to say, you'll quickly realize that his work has a mind and a will of its own...
... in case you didn't know, Brian Transeau's current work "This Binary Universe" was recently showcased in a deviantART-sponsored tour in late 2006 where he teamed up with 80's icon Thomas Dolby and performed in 24 major American cities as promoted in this major devART news article from last winter...
... in case you didn't know, he was recently robbed of his artistic belongings valued at more than $150,000...
... for over a decade, BT has been internationally recognized as a consummate composer and a leader in progressive electronica, often nicknamed "the father of trance" based upo

Personal Quote: "Without conviction, you've got nothing."
Will be poking around the anniversary and site today, in and out,

starting with this very interesting new article compiled by SRaffa.


Deviousness Award

Deviousness Award
There's always something very special about receiving a comment from `justthorne. This is a deviant who goes beyond supporting the DA community with the volume of his comments, but puts a lot of time and energy into the quality. When `justthorne posts a remark on a deviation, you can be sure that he has something very well thought out and insightful to say. His comments are something we would love to make an integral part of the deviantART experience, but `justthorne is just one man... So, instead, we'll have to settle with honoring him for his contributions to deviantART.

History records that, just days from now, a tremendous upheaval took place as the ground cracked and broke apart, tornadoes spun counter to their nature, and even Godzilla bowed as you appeared upon the Earth to grace us with your art. And so it is wished upon you to have a Happy Birthday on that day....and a most excellent cake. :D (Big Grin)  Have your cake and eat it too
