As you may have noticed, SETT looks and works a bit different today. Due to a mistake in the way we were merging code, we had to wait a few weeks to push all of the updates at once.
The biggest changes are:
- There's now a sidebar featuring community posts and members. Our biggest goal is to give a bigger voice to community members, so this is a step in that direction. Moving forward we'll be adding other stuff to the sidebar, including the archived posts that everyone keeps asking for.
- Our new editor works in all browsers, including IE, which had problems before. It also has a fullscreen mode which is great for composing long posts or replies.
Our immediate next priorities are making SETT faster, giving it a more consistent UI, and making it functional beyond just reading on mobile devices. We're giving some serious thought to raising money to hire people and make these and other improvements happen faster.

I mentioned last week that I had a deadline which I was working towards. I'm going to explain a bit more about this because a) it's consuming my life these days and b) I have the feeling this is going to be the beginning of something big. If it is something big, I think it might be interesting to hear it from the beginning.
What is Y Combinator?
Y Combinator is a "startup accelerator". Since that doesn't mean much, I'll explain how it works. You and your cofounder apply to Y Combinator. If they like you and your startup idea, they give you around $20k in exchange for a small piece of your company.
There are only two things that humans do on Earth: We work and we play. The latter is what we learn first — as children, we go outside, learn sports, and even pretend. In fact, humans are quite good at playing games and it’s been a central part of our evolutionary development. Science says so.
Today’s generation of players have migrated online and gravitate toward games specifically crafted for mobile devices.
