+1 to everything Joel said.  I'd love to help out wherever possible.

A random thought on article writing encouragement, too: everyone has ideas 
for articles, but nobody has time, right?  What if there was a list of 
potential article ideas that was out there that people could run with if 
they had the knowledge and the time to write an article about them?

I know my biggest hurdle for article writing has been ideas.

Meh...brain wandering this afternoon.
