This is great. I really don't think a big release is the way to go -- in fact, I think it would backfire. For this to work, I think I'll start offering particular services, like a "want to set up your own Dean website?" there are volunteers who can help.
And then build off that, slowly and quietly. I'll work on the DFA page that can do this.

Also, i think a theme contest is in order for DeanSpace.org. Does 2 weeks sound like a long enough time? We can put a vote to the submitted themese - with the winner winning "Default". -Zack On Mon, 4 Aug 2003, Joshua Koenig wrote: > > This is going to be a big week for Dean. > > In our own corner of the universe, we've gone "live" with our new > website, deanspace.org.
