Abraham's Wheel. Sounds epic!

Seriously, this is as relevant a piece of the puzzle as Thorin's Boondoggle. Let's create a discussion about the whole of the puzzle, namely, how do we as independent yet interdependent operators cooperate on creating output from the same source of such rich material? We all want and believe in revolution; we all want and believe that the path to revolution must include a praxis which embodies our ideal and revolutionary goals. And, we all acknowledge that all this crazy input AND crazy output is, well, crazy. So, we all have some common ground from which to approach this conversation. 

What is the goal? I don't know. Perhaps it is to simplify our endeavor by streamlining our input and output channels? To clarify the intentions of all actors toward our common purpose of revolution? Or to confirm the suspicions of some that this is not quite the case? Yes, a meeting must soon be held. Let us fix our goals, assess our real and actual dynamics at work among all relevant players and determine a course of action that advances our revolution.

Temperature check? (That's from everyone - not just you, Nicholas Weatherbird.)
