source: there are realities of the marketplace that trancend these feelings .. and our depends on those realities. 
Like what ?

This is just expressing my experience that you what you want to produce is not necessarily what people will buy or in this case use.  You need to keep mutating the thingy you are offering till you start getting bites on your lure.  You can't do that in a vacum.  You do that in the marketplace. 

For me, fastblogit is like a multi celled orgamism.  The multi cell are the groups.  This item, Identity Crisis, emerged because i realized that the whole domain has an identity, just like your body has an identity as opposed to the individual cells that compose it.  The zip install file is like the the DNA instructions that are used to reproduce other individual animals.  That is what i want to produce.  Primarialy because i am still playing this Leviathan game in my mind, and probably always will (for which i offer no apoligies). 

But what i realize is that Leviathan game is not necessarialy what will sell.  Though it just might,  who know, sometimes you get what you wish for, and somethimes you do best that which your have been targeting for all your life. 

Incidentally there are features that we can put into fastblogit which will tend to emphacize the Leviathan model.  We can draw more stringent dividing lines between what is internal to the domain and what the domain looks like from the outside.  Some of those might be:
  1. an option to allow a item to be public for the domain - viewable if you come to the domain and look - but not published externally. 
  2. don't put items that are domain private in the river  - or perhaps dont put items that are domain private in the river that is seen by someone who has not signed on.
  3. ...

Lots of good ideas here
Sometimes I wonder if we are trying to hard to match the features of presumed competition rather than aiming hard at a release.

i don't think these things affect the release date. programatically they are small. attitudinally they are large.

Seth says
the biggest thing that affects the "release date" aka the fold is the url http://speaktomecatalog.com Christmas Season and the programming that i am doing for our new amazon store.

actually, if we buy into the Leviathan model, that should affect group about.

Mark de LA says
My ideas about the group about are known. It is not static! We need something for newbies to grasp the overall concepts & features.  The rest resides in the faq areas. The Leviathan model seems like the endless attempt to make it a perfect being. CyberMind-I suffered from that illness . Hopefully FastBlogIt won't catch that virus !

group about is static if you keep it static.  Right now you are not doing it that way, you are pushing items on top of the first item in the group, hense making that item not a static one.  This takes a bit of dicipline.  Keep the single item on top.  Make the subrodinate items referenced from that top of presentation item.  That is the way i designed the group to work and if you fight the design, then the group will not work.  Later we can have a option that would enforce that in a group, perhaps make the group fifo.  But till we have that item, when you are finished editing subrodinate items, just push the top one back on top.  Is that too hard to do? Also we can have an option to have a custom style sheet for the group ... you can make the presentation look almost like a classical web page.  What is needed now is to get the content approximately on target.

Horseshit !  There is no conception of perfection involved whatsoever.  This is like a baby that starts out and gets changed through experience.

Yes, perhaps it did.  I also note that that urge for perfection before shitting product did not stem from me .
