The purpose of the forum.

A blog is a great mechanism for teaching, broadcasting, promoting.

A forum on the other hand is better for collaborating, discussion, finding like minded people, thrashing out ideas...

In my opinion, this site would work better if Chris's blog and the Crash Course itself handled the big picture educational aspect, and the forum focussed on the collaborative future-oriented part.. 

Helping us to help each other.. rather than exchanging opinions (of varying quality) on hot button topics..
