Marketing and other new beginnings

My pessimism extends to the point of even suspecting the sincerity of the pessimists.
- Jean Rostand

That is, by far, one of my favorite quotes of recent times. Anyways, so I have recently discovered a new source of people...not just people, but many intelligent people from a wide variety of backgrounds and cultures, not to mention ages and nationalities. Thus, I am going to start a heavy "marketing campaign" to get people to come join us, so we aren't talking to ourselves for months at a time. Will I succeed? Probably not, but I'm optimistic in this new group of people I have found.

That being said, hopefully sometime tonight (or tomorrow, or Sunday...let's be honest here), I am going to rewrite my mission statement of creating this blog and post it right there at the top so everyone can read it when they first find us. I'm motivated once again to give this thing a go because I'm starting to miss intelligent conversation and this place, in theory, is the best place for it.

More later - Nathan
