message board on the website?

well, we need to make a decision.
Steve suggested we put a message board on http://videoblogging.info.
PRO
–We can better document our discussions, our emails wont get clogged up with
messages, new people can learn from our experinece.
–new people might not be scared off by much of the advanced technical jargon.
–people can browse and post where they need to and feel comfortable.
–the message board is much more public, w/different threads, for anyone to
browse and ask questions

CON
–Peter said that a message board is difficult if no one really posts.
–Andreas made the good point that the message board will take away from this
email list..and though there are 60 of us now…we're still relatively small.
–When do you post on the message board and when do you post on the email
list?
–And the emails pop up automatically..whereas the message board, youd have to
check.

so what do people think:
message board on the website?
or stick with this email list.
