Subject Re: Incubator reorg ideas: sub-groups per technology?

I think there's merit in the idea of multiple, smaller incubators, so
long as it is set up in a way that doesn't involve prospective podlings
playing the incubators against each other.

Smaller groups, with smaller membership, gives the chance of a greater
sense of ownership and identification, which are important to community
