This is going to be a very non-specific post. A thread I have been posting in over on LinuxQuestions.org has made me think – and you know what happens when I start thinking? That’s right, I get sleepy. And then I get writing. This being the internet and bandwidth and server space being free or low cost, every day someone decides that they will start up the next killer website/forum/mailing list/IRC channel/blog. This will be the <whatever> to end all <whatevers> and will bring in the clicks by the thousand. These people get very excited and start to post links wherever they can find a suitable site. And then what?
<as a fair man, this is only aimed at people who want to do something to bring in the public – starting any of these things as a personal project or somewhere their friends can hang out online means that these words do not apply>
