69. My thumbnail impression of DU3.
First of all...

- My general view of DU3 is positive.
- It works better with my "smart phone" than the current incarnation of DU. (Loads pages much faster, too.)
- It's LIGHT YEARS ahead of most other "Social Media" and "Forum" software I've seen. (Yes, including Facebook)

- I haven't had the Jury experience yet. So, I really can't comment on it.
- Looks like the Admins are taking the "Transparency Oath" seriously. In the long run, I think this is damaging
to personal expression. Especially, for those who would be shy or inhibited without some anonymity. It will be hell
on the disruptors though.

One of the major arguments I've heard is that the "Judicial System" built into DU3 will inhibit or promote "cliques". I must be missing something because I don't see how this is true. Compared to the current high maintenance "Alert/Recce" system.

What else do you want to know? :shrug:
