Website – Current Prototype
1. To demonstrate the proposed feature set.
2. To coordinate the startup.
3. To promote our idea.
4. To learn how to create a website and blog, so that we can teach others & exemplify that anyone can do it!
Note: Created Jan 18, 2017, this is our first website that’s more than a very simple html page.
Note: Currently not spending time to optimize the look & feel, just testing the basics.

Website – Required Improvements
Better mobile experience: The theme is responsive (changes with screen size) but the menus, font sizes, bullet indenting, paragraph pacing and video embedding need refinement.
Better presentation: The theme customization, such as colors and title fonts can be improved.
