How about a free copy of Bitshares 101 when people download the software? :-)

We welcome with open arms any input, ideas, or suggestions

Here we go. I was at a friends house and we started talking about tech. He then asked me what I thought about Ethereum, and he also mentioned ripple. He is just an observer of crypto with no stake in anything, but he confirmed that he has heard loads of press about those other projects and none about Bitshares. When discussing why that was, he showed me ethereum.org, and he praised its clarity and speed at telling the visitor what he needs to know about ethereum. At the top of the page it has headers for:

What - clearly explains what ethereum is
Quote
Ethereum is a platform and a programming language that makes it possible for any developer to build and publish next-generation distributed applications.
Why - clearly explains why I should care about ethereum
Quote
Most of the services you use today have something in common: they are centralized...

We then compared it with bitshares.org, my passive observer friend said that he couldnt tell what on earth Bitshares was. There are no quick links at the top for What and Why. Instead there are links to TV - he doesnt want to watch 30 minute TV episodes, he wants to know what BitShares is in 20 seconds or he is closing the page and going elsewhere.

His comments after reading the content on bitshares.org were:
Quote
Avoid the outrageous fees... As Good As Cash
- so why is this any better than Bitcoin?
Quote
Any Currency
- other projects give you multiple currencies, why is this better?


Anyway this is the honest feedback that my friend gave me about the site. We need to explain the core appeal of BitShares more succinctly.

May be a great way to build an email list. (Pop up or capture page after they start downloading the client)

I think this is all true. Needs to be clearer.

@Adam: Are you open to working with the nullstreet gang? Also, have you seen http://www.aboutbts.com/? This was the Chinese community's effort in lieu of the western folks.

I'm very excited about this. It is the right direction for sure.

Is this where and when VOTE/FMV begin to slip away into the night as the FMV guy takes over marketing and the VOTE aspects of the DAC never becomes what it was hyped to be which resulted in a massive share dilution?

Is this guy getting paid beyond the 7% of AGS he already received with FMV and the diluted shares? Seems his unearned stake should be plenty of incentive to work for free now.

He is not being paid any funds nor does he have a paid delegate at this point.
