Hey folks,
I have been trying to think of ways that we can reach the most people possible with what we eventually do here (speaking of which, we still need to work on what our goals are). We have mentioned YouTube, which I think would be cool IF what we do is good enough that people will want to pass it on to their friends after seeing it.

As for archetypes that we might use (see my long post about strategies): Pirates and ninjas. No, I'm serious. We want something that people will voluntarily pass on to their friends. And everyone loves pirates and ninjas. I'm still serious (about the general idea at least).

Also, I have been thinking about media other than You Tube. Do we, or anyone we know, know how to use Flash? Picture a smash hit the magnitude of Homestar Runner, but with educational content.

OR, what about an educational webcomic? Sounds lame, but we would make it not-lame. And it's another type of medium that can quickly spread throughout the interwebs *if* it catches on (look at xkcd).

PS- Read about memes if you aren't familiar with the term. What (I believe) we want to do, is create memes.
