The joshbryant vs. novotny thing has given me an idea. We should have a debate forum. Get two people in the industry who have differing points to argue it out in a forum that only they can write in but that everyone can see.
there are thousands of people who are in the industry and know a lot about it, I bet you could get some really good discussions going fi you pick the people carefully. You could also do it with current events, even though that could get sketchy with who to pick to discuss.
If you did it with current events as well as things from the industry you could get some really interesting stuff going. You could also have select members who are knowledgeble on certain subjects be included in debates, of course that would have to be watched very closely. It would also be a way for those people whose only news source is Newschoolers to hear about things.
