A soapbox by any other name.

Ah the gathering is upon us dear friends. There can be only one real representative for the MDs in the CSM, or at least it would be a benefit to have one voice speak for our little niche of the EVE experience. This is my personal view ofc, and should you believe that spreading the “(im)-powerment” to more candidates is better I suggest you go get informed and stock up on waffles and beer for the soapbox acts. The Gathering

The way I see it we would do good to get our old man Omber Zombie back in there, so he can start wrestling the good doctor in LaVistas absence. I guess our main man Charlie has served his time and can retire in honor.

Should you feel inclined to learn more about the scary thing called Omber Zombie take a look at his blog.

My name is Zerah Sinai..

Its time to introduce the fresh meat, straight from the meat lockers. I sat down and had a nice one on one with this nice new chic named Zerah. Even as I was getting my hopes up, ofc its just another of the Eddie Izzard wannabes. This cross dressing fad is messing with my mind..  Even if I disregard my occasional Muestereate fantasy (also A guy in that skin suit)..

Zerah aka Nick happens to be a catch 22 year old US citizen. Joining us only 6 weeks ago and already jumping head first into the MD crowd, potential tinhorn that one. Well considering his background from a business school I guess its what could have been expected. So here he is with his motto; “Have Industrial Will Travel”

I threw a few of those classic questions at him, about where he is going and what his interests in EVE mainly is. In his own words; “i would like to teach people how to play, and build a trading community” I guess he is trying to steal my thunder. 😉

When asked about his early days on the learning curve he told me he did experience a bit of EVE dumbfoundedness but was so interested in the vast possibilities, especially in the markets, that he gritted his teeth and stayed in there.

It seems like this cat is here for the long run. He is already meter mezmerized by the skill queue and his wallet and transaction screens so guess his brain is porridge cooked close to the same degree as the rest of us. Well maybe not stale cold porridge like some of us past sale expiration dates. We have to use meat makeup to look fresh. So open your arms for a group hug and welcome this youngblood to the MD.
