Given that "how about a physical release?" was met with almost 0 response, I don't think we're quite up to the 'putting money into it' stage yet.

We're in the age now where its beginning to be more apparent that we don't need a middleman to achieve creative things like this, and be ourselves sustainable to continue and evolve. We have the tools and a more direct line to our fans once the fanbase is big enough than ever before. Fans who enjoy what were doing can be very generous if we communicate the fact.
If its a flash setup, instead of just a blog, then it gives a reason for me, Akkya and Herd (and whoever else) to put our 2d/3d animations in there, even Nmesh's and Noisesurfer's crazy video sampling can be incorporated in there, Ross's photos, all of that together will give the group an extra character, and show were capable of creating not just music, since Pande is good with websites for example. One thing we need to do is stretch out, not just pump music out, but create the opportunities for our music to be used in different ways and different places.
If we're going to be serious about Terminal beyond where it is now, we all need to get 100% behind it creatively.
All our releases will need to be under the Terminal umbrella, or released through Terminal. All future releases like My World Building album, International Debris, Nmesh's future work, Herd's, Akkya's, FMA's, Noisesurfer's etc etc. Then we ALL get behind it and promote it. Newsletters, mixes, ads, videos, you name it. So peeps all come to Terminal for all our material under one roof, and then discover other work, and all our fanbases come together, instead of being spread out. This would be good for those who are struggling abit.
Its up to us if we want to be under one thing so people can find us easier, or we can just keep following our own paths by ourselves in the vast seas.
Where it is now with Radio and the few newsfeeds, and this forum, its pretty cool to me, we're in a good spot now. For our next step, if we choose to take it, Its also probably a good opportunity to try these new things out.
