I just recieved an e-mail from Micke detailing his views on the progression of the emu scene in response to my Shifting Balance editorial. I felt that he brought up some good points and elaboated on a few things my article didn't cover, so I've decided to post it on the site (mine only focused on bleem! and UltraHLE). Besides fixing grammar and editing a few things for clarity, this exposition is completely in his own words. Point your mouse <a href="articles.php">here</a> and give it a read. Don't forget to leave a comment to tell what you think of it.
