Hey FloridaBuilder,

Please forgive the heinous lack of a response - i've been traveling in England as a play I wrote was produced in London this week. (My name used to be "Broadway" Dan" for that reason.) Anyway, I am rushing to get to a tour with the wife and child and will seriously consider and kick your ideas around with our guys to see what we can do to get you what you want. What you're asking for might be bigger than the mission statement of TJC, but if there's any way we can make it easier for you to get exactly what you want, we will try. For now, there is a major human touch to TJC (mostly moi and my partner Joe - a terrific graphic artist/web dude/marketing guru) and it basically revolves around my ability to find the content that seems to have the most educational, amusing and enriching.

And thanks for the Duke and character praise. I am meeting with the Duke when I return and definitely think he'd be a great part of TJC if we add a video channel and some more video.

The key here, so far, is to create a place that:

Honors the great contributions of our community
highlights the best stuff so it's simple to find
cracks people up
adds some graphic sizzle to the controversial things Fools write
makes CAPS seem less overwhelming to rookies

Bottom line - I want TJC to be the media wing of CAPS, and would love to kick around some other ideas to you and the guys. for example, Wild Pitches (mocking bad pitches), Great Calls (celebrating amazing stock picks), a much more detailed scorecard that goes beyond the top 10, and I'm open to suggestions for adding things. That said, I think one of the big benefits of this publication is making it simple to find the best stuff created during the week. So, keeping it simple is very important.

Gotta run - wife yelling at me to hurry up so we can see a museum or the like today.

Thanks FB for all your great contributions and thoughts as always.

Best,

HD
