while I think that weblogs would foster adoption, the other exceptionally important issue (which no one has yet addressed to my satisfaction, anyway) are the lack of reliable, _inexpensive_ hosting facilities that will allow an OpenACS installation to run.

Adam, I totally agree here--one of the reasons I ended up hosting myself over my DSL line was that I knew I wouldn't find a provider that would meet my (admittedly cheap) price point.

But isn't our other problem that most people who want to use OpenACS need to be able to modify it? And doesn't that create a problem for a host security-wise?
