Hey guys, here’s my proposed blog post - please have a read and let me know what you think http://astonj.com/blog-post.png // @adambeynon @elia @loicboutet
Adam & Elia - do you think I should make it more obvious that Fire is currently in planning? Or is that something that can be covered in FAQs. If you are not ready to announce Fire I can remove it from the post, however I think that would be a shame as it's possible the article may generate quite a bit of interest and you might be able to attract people interested in being part of the project.
Perhaps for the homepage we can for now, simply have the Fire logo and beneath it a slogan with the words "Frontends in Ruby" and then a vertical ticker that loops through words beginning with E, like:
Frontends in Ruby easily | effectively | elegantly | everywhere (etc). We could make it more interesting by having a video with sound, and sound waves animated to three sets of frequencies (high, mid and low) and some phrases relating to Fire that randomly fade in and out on the page - but I'm not sure whether that's possible using JS/Opal and maybe it would take too long to sort out (just thought it might be a cool way to grab people's attention - if we could say it was done in an alpha build of Fire (or Opal)).
Anyway, please let me know what you all think!
