Tony I think your worry is valid. The ability for the average new web
developer to keep up with the 'framework-flavor of the week
race-to-the-top/bottom', 25K android devices and endless platform/os issues
is probably enough to drive them away from standards as soon as they get
their feet even remotely wet. That said, I've enjoyed keeping up with
things from this list. I'm active on it but definitely read it. If there is
a way to gauge number readers that might help you guys determine if the
effort is worth it. :)
