Hi Ryan, Very good article and tips. Recently my learning curve was on a sharp arch while launching ABRA and many of the topics you brought up ring very true.
Someone once told me that some of the things that will drive you crazy and think will turn your clients off, will actually be small and meaningless in the long run. Listen to your clients and users. Afterall, they're the one using the site.
Thanks for the article and rock on! Frank www.goabra.com
