Thought it was about time I posted, since it has been an unprecedented amount of time since I've updated the front page, and I felt I owe an explanation.
My new job has made it very hard to update the site regularly, and the free time I do have I don't feel compelled to spend in front of a computer! A variety of business trips, lack of internet at home (temporary!), a fried laptop, and running Windows Vista/IE7 on my work machine has conspired to make it very hard to update the site and check my e-mail.
I most definitely plan on reviving my efforts, fulfilling my promise of giving away my AIBO, and continuing to provide the 400,000 of you a month that come to Gen5 for AI content.
There is a good chance that Gen5 front page will move more toward a blog, with me posting articles and AI movements that I find interesting, while maintaining the fantastic community provided content people still send.
I'm keen to migrate the JDK to .NET, making AI concepts quicker to prototype and visualize, but this will definitely be an ongoing project!
I do apologize for the lack of updates, my bouncing e-mail and not following up the AIBO competition - it will all happen, just in time! In the meantime, I'm pretty sure the only person that has read the 400 or so articles on this site is me, so feel free to peruse the site!
