I realized the moment I fell into the fissure that the Book would not be destroyed as I had planned. It continued falling into that starry expanse, of which I had only a fleeting glimpse. I have tried to speculate where it might have landed, but I must admit that such conjecture is futile. Still, questions about whose hands might one day hold my Myst book are unsettling to me. I know my apprehensions might never be allayed, and so I close, realizing that perhaps the ending has not yet been written. -- Atrus

The Things I Do for You...

Now that things seem to be shuffling along among the Cyan team, fans are getting back into the swing of things, namely speculation on what Cyan is doing next.  Or rather, what Cyan is doing now, because we don't know.  I might have written "because we don't have a clue", but in fact, according to greydragon, we have been given enough clues to figure out as much as they want us to.  We've been given a picture, or I guess two pictures, and some replies in the "speculation thread" on the forums that obviously are clues, but I sure as hell haven't been able to figure anything out (apart from that reply that incorporated the color cyan, which obviously means it's related to Cyan -- I see what you did there).

As I paged through the replies that have been posted since I last visited the site, I realized two things: 1. I forgot how stupid forum puzzles make me feel, and 2. I need a Twitter account.

Regarding #1, allow me to explain.  Here's the way things work.  We fans are given a clue about something that requires some intense technological expertise (or brain power superior to my own) to figure out.  Then some very computer-savvy fans -- with excellent time management skills -- post replies pertaining to computery stuff.  Then one of these geniuses (because they truly are geniuses, damn) figures it out and I am left stunned.  It's pretty cool to see them work it out, though.

As for #2: much of the speculation thread contains links to stuff on Cyan's FB page and Twitter account, and a zillion other links.  How do you guys find this stuff?!  I've noticed that I have been missing out on a lot of things, which makes me extra proud that I am able to be among the first group of folks actively participating in the new Cyan forums.  As I posted earlier, I am usually well behind.

I don't like the idea of being part of more than one social network thingy, and so up till now I have not even been curious about Twitter.  However, in hopes I can better keep up with the goings on at this most exciting time, I finally caved and created an account purely for Cyan.  At least now I may have a better chance at being as up to speed as my fellow fans, who are by far more intelligent than I am.

Tweet, tweet!
