Post 279317 by markbao deleted for the following reason: This is way too broad and "let's have a discussion" to make sense as an Ask Metafilter question. If you have a much more focused question at the core of this that you can whittle this framing down to, you could give this another shot, but it needs to be much clearer what problem you're trying to solve vs just looking for general thoughts on a subject. -- cortex
