so I ACTUALLY released a new AMV (I did a few ones last year, but 3 in a year compared to prior to that the last one I did was 2005)

Well after running the contest at Sakura-Con for the last 8 cons (2005-2012) I am finally stepping away from the contest.
I was elected to the Vice Chairman position and will not be able to continue to coordinate the contest. With this change there are also changes within the organization of the department where the contest is, a change that was held off for the last 2 years while I was still coordinating the contest.
The change did not fully hit me until a few days ago as I was setting up my gmail so that I am able to send mail from my new convention alias. I stared at the alias set up for the amv contest and once I deleted that I knew that the era of me running the contest was at an end.
It is still kind of surreal, but I will not be fully out of the picture as I will be keeping an eye on whomever takes the reigns, as well as be there to offer advice as needed.
I still have a few loose ends to finish tying up. The contest computer needs to be packed up, and returned to storage for its upgrade, as well as I need to mail off 3 sets of trophies, as well as prep the archives and my last final report of the year.
I have been playing around with ConPlayer that Quu has been working on, and I REALLY wish I knew programming, especially for Android apps. I would soo program an app for my phone as an alternate way to control it instead of its web interface. I even have a basic idea how the app would look, resembling the interface of Pwolf's AMVapp.
