I started learning Arc & Lisp 4 months ago and I believe Arc and Lisp dialects are the most beautiful programming languages in existence today.
My background is in investment research at a large institutional investor. I am now building out a site where I will be curating and creating specific investment research analysis for members.
I'd like it to use the same simple mechanism of HN - upvoting of posts and comments, and a clean interface.
This will bring a new level of interactivity into reports and news and transcripts. Imagine if professional investors all over the world had a forum like this -- to discuss quality content -- instead of relying on their face-to-face networks?
Might anyone here be interested in working together to adapt the HN code from https://github.com/wting/hackernews?
Modifications: search, social media links, submission text formatting options, and having the page split into three horizontal parts, each with its own aggregator count.
I promise it'll be fun - I'll code with you as much as I can, and supply the content.
Once we get a good base of members and engagement, we can explore revenue options. Have a couple in mind and would love to share with anyone who is up to listen!
