I would also add not only to make early ones in one language first
(without messing up later multi-lingual support), we would probably do
well to make early versions only geek-friendly (without messing up later

Making it work with no or few questions out of the box may be
overwhelmingly difficult the first time, requiring multiple skill sets
few individuals have. Making something that works, however non-geek
unfriendly, may require skill sets many individuals have. Then their
results can be picked up by others with different skill sets to make
them non-geek friendly.
