It is a fact of life that all things must have an ending and this is true of Dasonet as well. It has been a lot of fun creating and maintaining this web site for Durham artists over the years, but the time has come to acknowledge the power of the facebooks of the world. People no longer have time for more than one or two social networks.
Therefore, in compliance with the immutable laws of impermanence, like a Tibetan sand painting, Dasonet will disappear in a puff of smoke and be scattered to the ten directions.
Membership is now closed and current members will have until March 2015 to collect their stuff.
It's been a fun seven years and thank you, each and every one, for all your great contributions.
I have created a Facebook group for those members who would like to see Dasonet continue as a social network. The link is at: http://www.facebook.com/groups/309758485875575/
You still have until March 2015 to retrieve your content and, if you wish, post it to the Facebook group. After that the current website will be shut down.
