Perhaps the core learning was that we spent weeks before launch filling the
service with great and relevant content ("content is king" went the mantra),
and sure,,much of it was read. But the thing gay men really wanted to do was
meet and talk to each other on-line via chat and threaded discussions. And
that's where the action was.

Also to make the latter work required a full time editor at the minimum. The
personality of that person was very important too.
