at home and open a newbie friendly forum to help attract and also important

Forums are where the new blood is and the new ideas. The more open and
inviting the linux audio community appears to those not already members the
better, IMHO. A forum can help consolidate information into more easily
browsable and indexed archives... a section for hardware related
discussions, one for software, one for beginners, one for dev, different
languages... I'm sure most of you have taken time away from the lists to

suppose an official IRC channel wouldn't be a bad idea either for the "I
wanted the answer yesterday" crowd. Doesn't matter if it really works that
way or not, it's the presentation that it might that will make it attractiv=

to new members.

It's true that lists are a very powerful and efficient means of
communication but it's also true that to many newbies they seem a bit
antiquated and stuffy. Social networking is the new buzzword and a simple
list might not be enough to keep up with the changing times...

Just my thoughts.

Happy Holidays!
