I was reading a blog by David where Andras showed his unhappiness on the Nanopaprika growth.
András restlessness and dissatisfaction with the pace of growth of Nanopaprika are very expressive. I was happy to learn about his restlessness.
However, did the Nanopaprika try to evaluate the reason behind its slow growth? If we see the trend, Nanopaprika is on the way to become a nano-community website for conference advertisement or PhD or PostDoc position postings. This can be seen by the mails we received in our mail box from Nanopaprika. So the growth of Nanopaprika is moving towards ending up in a job portal site rather than an active nano community.
Look at the blogs, for example, major portion of the blogs contributes to the conference adv. postings or studentship postings. These posts are relevant too as they are responsible for keeping Nanopaprika hits alive.
However, if Nanopaprika has to insights the long course vitality, Nanopaprika has to come up with a vision of supplementing new dimensions apart from such postings. Nanopaprika had to dive into the psychology of the humans working in or around nanoscience. What are their needs? What are the paraphernalia which can be the focus to blaze up the nano-community?
Work out the riddles of nano-humans mind, crack them out, and I am sure that it can help remove the restlessness out of András legs.
