>>#11 [1]. How has contributed to:'s contribution margins?, ROE?, revenue growth?,'s competitive strategy? and competitive advantage?, brand equity?


The q4 Feb 11 2010 CC has come and gone but this remains a if not [the] key question(s), all related to and [and Geeknet (LNUX)'s real [pv] Future. 

Q: What/When are the minds behind doing to turn itself, {? ... ?} into something extraordinary...into a Viral Loop? The presupposition being that needs to happen. It not only needs to happen but it is a given, vis-a-vis a mathematical identity e.g. 0 + 0  = 0.  The answer to this question and below related subpoints represents Geeknet (LNUX)s Future and pv

               * competitive position vis-a-vis launchpad.netgithub.netcodeplex.comgoogle code...(will Geeknet acquire Github? or enter into strategic alliances with launchpad?). Why hasn't SF aggressively pursued establishing a World Class  "Mobile (iPhone, Android, WIndows7....) Apps" Projects section/competition? 

               * Establishing a mind-blowing World Class ohloh-sourceforge-slashdot-freshmeat Web 2.0+/Viral [Expansion] Loop Feedback ecosystem.

I am thinking this is what Scott CollisonJason AllenAndy VerprauskusRobin Luckey, et al are up to/thinking about. But this is [the] Geeknet (LNUX) ten-bagger question.
