This is actually pretty fascinating. I've always wondered why Stack Exchange became a bunch of splintered sites, and this article sufficiently explains that it's because of your interpretation of the "rule of three." I still think SE should have been one site with multiple main categories instead of separately-branded "mini me" sites, but at least I now understand why you thought the approach made sense.

If your approach to a "new PHP" is as obtuse and scatterbrained as Stack Overflow, then I don't think PHP is in trouble. Seriously, a family of sites rather than just having categories? Each site w/ its own rep total? And weird-ass badges and rankings of all different kinds? This "suite" of sites is like the web version of Donkey Kong 64 -- packed with extraneous nuggets and low on core fun/usability. If you truly manage to come up with something that competes with PHP and yet is more "pure", I wish you all the best, and I'll be first to extol its virtues. But I sure don't see it happening. I have a William James view on the issue of programming languages. Pragmatism is king.

In fairness, Instapaper relies on an extremely basic idea which makes sense for Apple (or anyone) to incorporate as a built-in feature.
