Hey Gerard, I think you might have missed *my* point? Please note that I was nuancing something that Adam said that caught my eye. I broadly agree with your (Gerard's) position.
You say: The notion that "people just want the content no matter how great of awful the skin is" is awful. I agree it's an awful notion, but often times facts of the matter are awful. Wikimedia content turns up in all kinds of curious places, in all kinds of formats and design far beyond our control - because we make the information free for people to do so, because that's what we want. We can and should concentrate on our user interface, but I think removing/slimming down/hiding editing tools in the interest of displaying content does a disservice to what we do. The Wikiwands of the world should be welcomed to rethink how to display content, we should learn from them, but I do not think we should emulate them. Let them do their thing with our content, and we can do ours. I don't see it as a competition, we should continue to do what we can to create and curate more content for both our own use as well as reuse, that's our end of the bargain.
