Jel, thanks for making me smile. If I felt the nature of TW was threatened, I'd react in the same way. But "marketing" TW - at least what I mean with it - simply means to put the product "out there" so that more people can use it and engage in its development. In fact, <https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?date=all&q=tiddlywiki>we need people here. Your contributions to TW, made even before TW existed, are clearly exceptional but the rest of us had to *find out* about TW in order to use and contribute to it today. We can have our little Mona Lisa hidden in our little closet or we can at least attempt to make it known to the world so more people can enjoy it. It is not *either* a beautiful product *or *a product that many people like - it is both.
if you're so brilliant in your omniscient knowledge, go play in your own > sandpit and produce something better. Tiddlywiki succeeds precisely BECAUSE > it isn't specific:to a need. Yes! In my omniscient brilliance I am looking for exactly that; that we create specialized 'sandpits' and we make these easily found ("we market them"). That way, people have a chance to get to know about (real) TW which they probably would not do otherwise. Now Jel, I'm REALLY curious what your ideas are for how we should get more people to use TW and to contribute to its development? Clearly, just having a "great product" is not enough in this time of information overflow. As you can tell, I'm not a professional marketer nor a competent coder, nor do I have as much experience as you do. So, please share your actual ideas how to make more people come to join the TW project. Or, better yet, don't jus hare ideas but help out with implementig them! <:-) -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "TiddlyWiki" group.
