I have been trying to gear up for D3 so I could develop on my own, but I just do not have the time to live life, learn D3 AND get my idea out on the web quickly enough. So here I am...
Ideally, I would find a developer that would rather opt to be a partner in this site/app but not everyone is going to be as excited about this as I am.
I'm a hobbyist programmer, but I have web dev experience. I'm hoping to setup the foundation for my site in a CMS system like Drupal (they have a D3 module in development right now) to handle the site security, user db management, etc. I just need the D3 component together and running.
