And especially, make it an event where people AREN'T selling their comics and other goods. I was thinking the first year I went to webcomics weekend in Mass could have been a great opportunity for this.
However, the focus was more on panels and tables selling t-shirts. :C
Generally when one breaks the Wordpress/Comicpress model it seems like there is a lot of confusion and whining. I do a 4 panel strip webcomic where the panels are presented vertical rather than the "normal" horizontal orientation like everyone else is doing. Apparently people don't want to scroll. Could have forseen that, I suppose. For my comic I'd like to see the infinite scrolling thing. That way they'd have to scroll forever. It'd be like torture for them since the complainers hate the scrolling.
I can see the downfall with the infinite scrolling vs ad revenue, for sure. I don't use ads on my site, so I could care less about that, but I know a lot of people who rely on the ad revenue from their webcomics.
I think that the way we view webcomics needs to change on the web. Especially with things like iPads and smart phones without having to go the app route.
Maybe I should get back to work. T.T;
