So this is a rather large idea(s) and i know Jared always has a lot going on and new things working at the same time and testing now some crazy new coffee for us that will help us do back flips (or at least believe we can)
I think it could be great to have a mobil app. I'm not sure exactly how large this community is but I'm sure it has gotten fairly large and is still growing. The app could of course be used to read the blogs and the WODS but i think it should be focused on the community. Commenting on blogs, on this community portion and such. A long with connecting with Eo3 as a whole, it could also be used for local sub communities.
Say Jared comes out with another awesome challenge or crazy 5K, but I don't want to do it alone. The app could help connect with other Eo3'ers to do together. Or maybe somebody wants a training partner to do get ready for a spartan race or something. This helps the growing community to connect and grow stronger together. This could also spur larger social gatherings for like once a month sat WODS, etc.
This app could also be used for help locally. I am a Crossfit coach so most of the WODs and such I understand but i also see a lot of questions and confusion. Jared does great with explaining and having videos but sometimes people need in person help, where somebody like myself can offer help in person if need be, once again growing the community.
Another aspect the app could have is a table or section for the OMOB system. the person could enter their 1RM, say which cycle they are doing (rest time reduction, etc) and the app will tell them what they will do at the weight. This will also include the conditioning in that part. By buying OMOB that grants you a code to that section or for the better version.
Im about to graduate with my bachelors in Mass communication with a concentration in Public Relations and Advertising, and am interning at a Marketing firm so thinking from that perspective i see trends in the market and opportunities that Eo3 can definitely benefit from. Ive turned this site on to several people but still found myself at times wanting to connect more or do these WODs with somebody.
I might have more break throughs but this is good enough for now. let me know what you think.
