If you are not willing to get out there and roll the dice, you will never have a big win!

I have big plans for Lunarpedia, but it's important to remember what Lunarpedia is.
Lunarpedia is a rapidly growing site and information resource (and the flagship of up to five in the immediate term -- maybe more (The Main Belt, perhaps?)), not a foundation or other type of registered organization. Fortunately, we do already have a 501(c)(3) society for getting us back to Luna. Would it not be better to start the climb for some tasks better suited to an organization from a higher position where all the paperwork is already filled out? This is The Moon Society. I'm on the board of directors. former directors here include our longstanding listmaster User:Mdelaney, former NSS director User:Cfrjlr, User:Billclawson, and current Treasurer User:Dcarson.
We also have former vice president User:Davew and current society president User:Kokhmmm here. We also have opened up nominations for this year's elections: three board positions, vice president, and secretary. Maybe treasurer as well -- I need to nominate Dana for another term before he can try to get away. 8) Nominations are admittedly complicated by a requirement for two or more uninterrupted years of membership in the society before the election. That's something that needs to be brought up on the recently resurrected bylaws list. There is, however, no requirement for longevity to join the Leadership Council, something we inherited from the Artemis Society International. You could join it in pretty short order -- you've more than proven your dedication to our cause here. 8)
It may be more appropriate to make this a list of ideas for not just Lunarpedia, but the Moon Society, and possibly other societies with related interests, such as the Lunar Reclamation Society and other NSS chapters.

I'd also like to have better than Vegas house odds. 8) -- Strangelv 02:23, 23 March 2007 (PDT)

Big Ideas for ____________

I added some stuff. Who else could try to implement things appropriate for listing here that Florence Ambrose would consider medium-sized ideas (we're still world-scale, just that the world in question isn't Earth). Big Ideas for Corporations? Small Businesses? Governments? Space Agencies? Teachers? Homeschoolers? Space Society Chapters? Disaffected College Students? -- Strangelv 02:23, 23 March 2007 (PDT)

It looks like I hit a topic people find interesting.

I am certain that our people have a good gut feel for how imporant have a big hit with an idea is and it does not mater if the idea is the Internet or "American Idle". We live in a star culture.

We will certainly need to refactor the topic into a list and subtopics as soon as the first interest dies down.
