86 the roadmap #144
We have so much going on now that there are much better things that deserve to be on the roadmap. The current roadmap is fine, but they're all distance objectives that require other small incremental changes to come to fruition, so while they'll still happen it just makes us look immobile.
Originally I proposed that we replace the roadmap with a timeline, with the timeline being a chronological list of launch dates of products we've shipped. I don't think that's a good idea anymore because it's hard to say no to well-deserving smaller products that don't necessarily have the same "visual punch" to their product as other launches. This doesnt mean that they're insignificant, it means that it would muddy the water when it comes to knocking a first impression out of the park when it comes to what 2 or 3 links a new user clicks. In addition to this tragedy-of-the-commons, we have to be mindful of page load time. Our page is a pretty hefty pageload and I would love to get that down.
So, in the spirit of being the project that doesnt follow in the footsteps of others "come on guys, it's crypto, you have to have a roadmap and btctalk ann" I say we just get rid of the roadmap and look at doing a "gallery" page that's an evolution of the 'timeline' idea, but abstracted to a page that is off the main index page, but still linked from it. My reasoning for this is that someone who's interested enough to click our app-gallery link is sufficiently interested to take a minute and click around if we give them a sufficiently fluid browsing experience.
An idea for the timeline is to keep everything purely chronological so that no feelings are hurt, and the most recent project is always 'features'. This gives incentive to make product launches frequent to keep your name/brand/product at the top of the featured spot.
Let me know what you guys think
