I agree. As I've argued elsewhere
, the best technical
communities are in fact technical communities
. My reservation about having a "community" page would be that it might ghettoise non-technical stuff. It seems to me, from the eminence of a whole six weeks involvement with the monastery, that personal / community stuff does filter through a lot of the site in a good way. I think the way to make that side of things work better would be to reach and express a consensus that we like that, and then we would all feel we had maximum freedom to take an interest in non-technical matters (always remembering, of course, that it IS a technical forum). Please take this as a voice in support of that consensus.
Another thought - perhaps we might all be a bit more forthcoming, and less cool and allusive, on our home nodes.
