I wanted to create my own Skillet (I was going to create them anyway because this is a solution to productivity and learning issue my co-founder and I face) to see what the current experience would feel like if I was to do a real one. As I figured, there is a disconnection between the "Action items" and the updates that make it confusing for the person doing a Skillet and for the person looking at a Skillet to get context and perspective of the Skillet they are looking at. I think making the Skillet page fall into more of a strict timeline will resolve these experience issues. But, other than that, doing the Skillet is awesome and definitely headed in the direction it needs to be!
We are cleaning up Skillet to get it further along for an open beta. We hope to start building an awesome community of learners that want to learn new things, grow their existing skills, and share with others! And... provide us some awesome feedback so we can make it a great experience!
