Steemit.com will inevitably become less important over time as an interface. Communities and apps will be doing most of the onboarding and they will have their own landing pages.
What we have here is for those much more capable of existing out of the herd than the average person. Perhaps this is why, despite all their disagreements, Steemians tend to get along so tremendously well with one another. I believe that is because most of use tend to be idea people. We're not nearly as interested in interpersonal drama as the average person and our midsets tend to be much less rigid.
