97

Almost 15 years ago when I began envisioning the project I now call ‘Bassnectar,’ I had a million questions to ask, and a million thoughts to share. I wanted to create some kind of platform that would enable me to make a positive impact in the lives of others. There were many hypothetical details, many idealistic notions, and still many questions.

I never really conceived of it becoming what it is today, and due to the amorphous nature of my work flow, my creativity, and my oddball personality, I am not even sure where it is headed, but I am clinging along for the wild, wild, wild ride.

In the meantime, I am feeling overwhelmed by lack of time, and consumed by a million side projects I want to explore and by various ways I want to channel the momentum of Bassnectar and use it to effect positive change in the lives of others. And as a result of my lack of free time, I have become FLOODED with mail, messages, questions, interviews, etc, and I feel like I do not have time to adequately respond. Even when I do, there is no central organization or forum, so a lot of the same questions keep getting asked. Instead of just posting static responses, I would rather engage in constructive dialogue.

So…

We thought we would experiment a bit and start up a Q&A section, kind of like a Question of the Week or something… The idea being that you have a place to anonymously submit questions (see the form below), and we will pick one each week and try to give a thorough answer whenever we can find a moment amidst the melee. Hopefully this will evolve into some serious discussion about deep issues, not the typical superficial banter that seems to be about 90% of online interaction.

Feel free to ask about things that you really want to know, even if it’s just advice, or for some personal insight. Or you can challenge me if you take issue with something I have said or expressed in the past, or if you have heard your friends tell you I am a mainstream sellout, or that I eat babies, or that I am an alien, whatever….maybe I will wind up not having time to respond, but I will give it my best shot.

🙂

Thanks!
