I just learned of the project, and I think it's awesome.
Still, it might be hard for newcomer to learn about it because the information is found in forums such as this one, which are not exactly state of the art technology.

Do you think a Q&A site dedicated to bitcoin is something you'd want to have?
Such sites have many advantages to old phpbb forums if the focus of the requirements are questions rather than discussions: http://meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/36818/would-you-recommend-stack-exchange-sites-vs-other-types-of-forum

If the answer is yes, there are a few options I'm aware of:

1. Apply for a StackExchange site at http://area51.stackexchange.com/
2. Create one using Shapado in 8 seconds at http://shapado.com/
3. Host your own using OSQA at http://osqa.net/ (this is the option that I'm using for my own Q&A site)

Cheers,
Ron

You must mean http://meta.witcoin.com/

It took me some digging to understand what witcoin.com is at first.
Interesting concept, although I'm not sure it's the best course of action. Still, definitely interesting.

Why isn't it published from witcoin.org yet? Do you consider it too much beta?

I believe it's a social news site with a micropayment scheme.

Think of it as bitcoin's version of reddit/hacker news except that you can make money from upvoting and so on.

I finally managed to pay a few bitcoins to witcoin, and ask this question:

http://meta.witcoin.com/p/658/What-is-witcoin

Hopefully, it will contain the answer Smiley
