Are you planning to engage with the LW community to figure out what features to implement?

Eric R and I read all the comments in this thread. We've also met with multiple people in person to discuss exactly what the platform should look like. So the broad answer is "yes", but if you have a specific mode of engagement in mind, then it might be "no".

I know that Eliezer was heavily involved with Arbital's product management.

He is an adviser. There are no advocates to make him a BDFL as far as I know.

I suggest waiting a bit and then creating a new thread about this, to simulate the effect of a sticky.

I expect we'll have a public beta ready in two weeks. I plan to write a blog post of my own to explain Arbital in more details.

Sounds great!

if you have a specific mode of engagement in mind, then it might be "no".

Well, if you created a new thread called "Eric and I are taking suggestions for Arbital", I imagine you might get a lot more relevant ideas and feedback :)
