I think you got it entirely wrong. I was appealing to people who want
to make a change.
It would be a bit silly to expect people who are happy with status quo
to suddenly go crazy and change their lives, no?

This is not about people having rights to tell other people anything.
It's about whether we are happy with current state of affiars and how
much we are ready to do to get closer to our dream.

Novacut team got over 25K via Kickstarter recently. Would that cover
cost of production of a good sample library? Or a port of some synths
to LV2? Or finishing A3? Hell, yes. How did they do it? Appealing
project + marketing.

I'm all for getting all sorts of professionals involved, but here and
now if we want to get anything done and we can't find people who are
better at design, usability and marketing than us, then we can either
keep moaning or bloody well study the stuff the best we can.

Do you think usability architects focus on just usability? No, they
study every-fucking-thing that is even remotely related to human
beings and the world around us: art, architecture. physics etc.

Me? No, I'm as humble as a lamb :)
