I know that I am personally still kind of exploring it.  Maybe we could 
do something on it in a couple months?   It doesn't seem like there's 
much to talk about quite yet beyond functionality demos, but that's not 
as interesting to me as possible uses when it's actually launched.  (As 
we know, it's invite-only at this point).  I don't know how Dave and 
Tony feel, but that's my personal take on it.
