I tend to think for media research, small scale "Focus group" stuff works
the best. Ie getting 10-20 people in a room and observing how people
interact with the site(s), what they want to use it for, what they like
and what they dont. Too often our deliberations on indy sites seem more
around technical issues like cacheing and security while we ignore
useability and social issues surrounding them.
I still would love to build an "experimental" indy site for testing out
outlandish and ambitious ideas for indymedias to see what floats and what
But yeah, I certainly agree we shouldnt restrict our self to ((i)) "branded"
