Additionally, this was before I'd ever done any serious information architecture and communications stuff, so you will undoubtedly cringe upon reading some of my assumptions and JSON sketches. Additionally, this was before I discovered PouchDB (which is basically CouchDB in the browser) so a few of my ideas really wouldn't wash today. So, please consider these notes somewhat naive toward the goal of building the application. Please don't facepalm too hard, you'll give yourself a concussion. Maybe somebody will find them useful in their own work.
