In December 1998 a new website, UFOcity.com , went online with little fanfare. Its objective was to make the most grounded and most complete coverage available on all aspects of the UFO question accessible to anyone interested in the subject. Over time its mandate grew to cover related areas of interest such as false ufological claims, developments in space exploration, commercial implant technology, future science, controversies in ancient and prehistory studies, as well as big brother issues. Run something like a daily newspaper, the site was updated five days a week with the latest relevant news and events from every corner of the globe. This July 23 however it posted its final article. It was a particularly reflective day for me. I’ve worked as UFOcity.com’s Editor-In-Chief from its inception to its final day. Moving on from this enjoyable responsibility has given me cause to be grateful to those who helped make the website a reality, and to recall some of our more noteworthy accomplishments.
This columnist’s work appears in print several months after the fact, and when appropriate or possible I try and write in advance of real-time events, on some upcoming UFO-related conference or symposium for example. But even at a time when the unpredictability of world events has a good percentage of the population regularly on edge, I remain confident that as this issue of UFO Magazine hits your newsstand or arrives in your mailbox we are again entering the zenith of presidential campaign season.
