I think the best part is that we don't need to do anything different
than what we have to do anyway :)

Popularity surge or not, this might be a good idea; of course it has
to be adapted to ESME's concepts.

A very interesting idea would be to use different components from ESME
to create e.g. a Twitter bot; some of the code from ESME actions was
initially reused by a standalone bot which feeds items into ESME.

Absolutely- but I feel before we need to point hordes of potential
developers to our site, we should have something more presentable :(
maybe not a requirement for a motivated developer if they see promise,
but nevertheless finding out easily how to get started could come a
long way.
