First of all, I am inspired by how well our anarchist system works.
I agree that Meetup.com is slightly evil, even though I use it, I kind
of like it, and I have gone to a few meetups.
It's main value is publicity, but I'm not sure that we have a
publicity problem with our target audience.
It would be nice if we spruced up the website a little.
I use MoinMoin myself, but I'm starting to think it's a bit too clunky.
What do people think about putting the website on appengine with
Web2Py and KPAX ?
