I agree with this. The informations we get now and comunication oportunities combined with the widest part range ever we have now really good time for technic. When I compare this to what oportunities were available 20 years ago, this is a completely different level. Even without the internet, the part range and the new power functions make it much more fun than it was in the past.
I wonder what TLG thinks. It is golden age for technic also from their point of view? Is it growing theme? Does it attract wider audience than it did a few years ago? I hope it is and they will make it grow further. Of course, it is more difficult, since technic does not get any "help" from some popular movie like SW or LOTR, but I hope it will grow. I also treat this year TC as a some kind of positive signal.
