Great model Reed! As a visual artist I'm behind this 100%. I stay up
late arguing concepts with my friends all the time. Then, a couple of
days later, we'll all come back with art or music or poetry that steals
each others ideas or expands on them and the process starts all over
again. That's what I see community being all about.

Let's start a Movement here rather than a War.
