Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Well, there are the two questions of "What do we want the 'product' to do?", and "How do we make it do that?". The first does not define the second. Choices still have to be made on which infrastructure to use, etc. I imagine that the number of people with an opinion on number two are many fewer than on number one. I also think it is the less interesting question.

"What it does" will come to define the sort of community the site can support, "How it does it" should not matter. The user should not be able to feel the nuts and bolts of a properly designed 'product'. Thus, "what it does" comes first.
