Subject Re: Incubator, or "Incubation"?
Date Thu, 02 Feb 2012 22:37:37 GMT
My overall thoughts on this subject is that it is
interesting to see Bill participating in a discussion
that more or less amounts to knocking down the cathedral
we've erected here and replacing it with a bazaar.
Personally I'm not willing to walk with you guys
down that route just yet, but the thinking behind
the "experiment" I've been talking about was to
just tweakthe cathedral with a hybrid "outdoor market"
model.


Interesting discussion to watch tho, especially if
it starts to bear fruit.
