Thanks for all your feedback and pointers. I wasn't able to watch the 
Jesse Schell videos in full so far, but the parts I watched were highly 
entertaining and insightful, so I put them on my "to watch" list. I 
pretty much agree with most of the comments you made. We already 
brainstormed how to address some of the issues and improve. I believe we 
came up with some interesting ideas, which we will post as soon as we 
have something to show. (Disclaimer: That could take a while.)

Kind regards,
