Are you sick of The Man beating you down?
Ever felt like you need more people in your life to argue with?
Now you can finally do something about it!!!
Remember, I wrote (back in 2006!!!), that “in a couple months” I’d be making my blog a more personal space, and getting involved in a more activist-y site, to satisfy some conflicting drives? Well I did, see.
Now, after putting it off for many moons, it’s about a moon or so away. I think, though, we’ll have a soft opening of the site, now, exclusively for a small and elite group of individuals and friends (that’s you, blog reader).
I’d given up on the idea, until I was asked about it by those interested in helping; so you’ll notice some familiar faces there, in the construction. And we’re always in need of more help. If what we’re about is your cup of tea, hop on.
Okay, and I’ve also noticed folks from here wandering about there (How’d you find it?...). May as well at least get their input, eh?
A couple warnings… The site is far from finished; go there expecting errors and annoyances. It's not ready to be linked to, or for a public viewing larger than this post can give. In fact, most of the meaty content is on a hard drive, waiting for the programming for the library to be finished before it’s edited and posted. You will hit dead ends and missing content, and we’ve not rigorously tested even what is there yet (specifically, don’t try to add library content without a password yet; you'll be sorry...).
By this, though, I hope you can point out some of the bugs, and make suggestions on the design and such; the basic layout is there… or maybe you can just keep us company in the forum until it launches? You can see what we need most here. I’d appreciate any help to speed things up, by comments here or by comments in the forum (there’s a special place for such, here), or simply by email.
So take advantage of this special offer, and so on. And thanks, to any who help and those already part of the effort.
