same here, filled it last night. I also added in written text that LJ’s strength comes from a positive friendly and tight community.

however I kinda felt that it’s trying to compare apples to oranges. FWW is a published material, and LJ is an online community … 2 different animals. I dont find one ‘better’ than the other in anyway as they really are of different values and experiences. I find FWW very valuable as a source of knowledge that is based on years of research and experiences – sure – some of it is BS, but mostly it’s good stuff. LJ on the other hand is a place to mingle, and see what other’s are experiencing TODAY, what works for different people, and get a glimps of other’s work, ideas, jigs, shops, techniques, etc.

the way I look at it is , I’ll go to FWW to learn a new technique, and then come to LJ to discuss it with everyone and see how to finesse it, or find different variations of it. not really a “this one ? or that one?” kind of a thing.

BUT – touche indeed for LJ to be recognized as an equal
