All great thoughts, Jason! I hope that we get the SSO and the rest of Discourse set up soon, because this is a perfect case for it. I want to move your post to a new thread etc. but that's not how mailing-lists work… I think *discussing* this is good here and then Discourse when ready. Doing the actual organizing about which things are priority and should have our attention should still be at https://tree.taiga.io/project/snowdrift Personally, I'm taking the limited focus I have and working on writing things that relate to intro video, wiki content, stuff in Discourse, etc. and wanting to prioritize getting to a point where we can look at the site and feel good enough to make an announcement about the alpha launch.
