Kicking off work items turns into a layering violation almost immediately.  
On the other hand, getting work done reasonably well trumps theoretical  
purity (although we will have to pay for that later).

Yeah. Compared to your mostly invisible pages on github, and even W3C's  
twitter reach, search engines actually have quite a large footprint.  
Barely managing to appear in them in english suggests some work that  
should be done. And having a pile of outdated stuff as your most public  
face might match what developers do, but isn't helpful when they are  
trying to share some of their scarce spare time...

I'd be fine with that. Right after you learn to communicate in say 3 or 4  
of the world's top ten languages. Despite some crossover, most major  
languages have essentially monolingual cultures even in developer  
circles...
