We've launched an online education platform which crowdsources interactive explanations of high school math/science topics. We're hoping that it will fill a gap which currently exists, using the Internet to coordinate a large group effort to build the world's most extensive interactive math/science learning resource.(feel free to message me for a referral code if interested)
The main idea was to break up subjects into tiny morsels, each of which could be easily crowdsourced by enthusiastic students, who would also learn the material better by attempting to write. At the same time, we structured it in a way to make contributions very easy, so that one didn't need to know how to program in order to author dynamic content. We also structured it as a game - a math contest of sorts, in which points are awarded each time another student views and likes an author's explanation.
Since our mission is education, it's particularly important for the experience to be engaging (somehow we need to make learning as much fun as looking at pictures of kittens on the Internet, which is pretty hard...) NodeBB is the sole forum product out there which matches our philosophy. The forum section of our site is at http://concourse.expii.com (also a word play on Discourse).
It's very inspiring that a tiny but extraordinary team like yours could turn the world of forum software upside down, and I think you will soon win major recognition. Please keep up the good work. We're rooting for you!
