if you feel there is genuine conflict of interest between your work and contributing to ethereum, then something must give. If it is some stupid beaurocratic bs i am happy to send it without them ever knowing
your call

@zelig don't be dense, he's talking specifically about donations
no need to risk gainful employment when you're already being paid to work on etheruem :-p

It's not a huge deal, my company is a bank/insurance company so they take ethics, honesty, integrity seriously (as do I) so they are just being conservative on the approach
Thanks a lot for your offer @zelig and I agree it is stupid, but it isn't a deal to be paid to work on Ethereum at work and then volunteer outside of work to help move Ethereum along in a public consumption sense. Glad to do it

Thanks for the support.
So I just finished summarizing the arguments and coming to a conclusion on where everyone stands
@tgerring wants to not spend so much time planning the doc, but to get it done in a way that is easily consumable to the wider Ethereum ecosystem with a focus on Ethereum newcomers.
@alexvandesande wants there to be clear separation from the homestead guide and website tutorials.
@frozeman wants there to be solid reasoning to switching platforms and overhauling the guide. He wants to make sure people can easily contribute from the community with no barriers of entry. He wants to keep much of the specific or technical documentation on the wiki until there is clear community consenses it should all be moved.
@zelig would prefer moving nearly all wiki content to the homestead guide, but understands the issues at hand and is aiming for as little cross reference as possible.

@karalabe found a way to do it for the Go channel I think
So, in conclusion, I think we have enough of a consensus to at least start on this whole deal. We all agree that
  • we want to get it done without overplanning
  • want to make sure dev resources aren't overly used
  • the guide is for developers and users to start using ethereum and the wiki is for technical docs and specific pieces.
    I'll work more the next few days on designing the rest of the structure and will recruit community members to help write the guide once I write some sections to give an example ofthe format. I am a reddit mod for r/ethereum so I can even sticky the post if we need more visibility for volunteers to come forward.

@zelig i'm deleting and re-adding the integration. if this doesn't work then i give up
activity stream is nice, but not exactly worth spending lots of time debugging

@zelig It is not giving in as much as adding a very enthusiastic collaborator :)
