I think the greatly reduced UFO UpDates List traffic in recent
times is indicative not of other outlets on the internet, but of
a major existential crisis in ufology.

It has to do with cell phones.

Just in the last few years, the earth has been blanketed in
ubiquitous camera coverage. Billions of people now carry high
quality cameras everywhere they go. These devices are virtually
extensions of our hands, always at the ready to instantly record
whatever happens, anywhere. (Check out the many "flash mob"
videos on youtube to see how immediately and completely these
events are recorded, from multiple viewpoints and by numerous
observers.)

And yet - ufologists are still picking away at the bones of
Trent and (always!) Roswell.

There should be, by now, thousands of clear, high-quality UFO
images, with more appearing by the minute, to bicker about. So,
where are all those pictures?

I believe that this phenomena - the lack of expected imagery --
has caused many observers to take a giant step back and say,
"Something is not right here."

Could there, after all, be "no there, there?"

In any case, I will miss this list. Despite the curious lack of
new imagery, there are still many mysteries that need solving.

And finally, Thank you, Errol, for all your hard work and
laudable patience.
