Yes. Agreed. I think it helps us internally if we have a "launch" moment though. It focuses effort.

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.

All sounds great Josh - ill get cracking on this stuff tonight with you.

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".

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. This is good stuff. Now we need to think
strategy.

Basically, as soon as we start pushing this, we're going to get a lot
of interest from techies and regular campaign people alike. Deanspace
needs to channel that interest so it is rewarded and put to use,
rather
than frustrated.

Here are some ideas:

1) A "first time here?" page that explains what we're about
2) A release schedule and strategy for our "vanilla" kit.
3) A place for tech people to get the whole "alpha" package and start
messing around on their own.
4) A place for regular campaign people to get a taste of what we're
offering (e.g. a freebie demo site)

I'm going to take a stab at a "first time here" page. Anyone else
things think these are good ideas?

cheers
