 Okay ... this is my opinion.  I don't think a split is a good thing.  Granted, 
the team is big right now, and there are more opinions about everything, but 
that doesn't mean we have to split.  Waht we need is a hierarchy.  We need a 
CDT lead, and then a lead person for each of the categories (UI lead, sound 
lead, logo lead).  The team lead will coordinate with the category leads which 
will coordinate with their teams.  I suggest that we limit ourselves to being 
on no more than two teams (this will keep us more focused, and will make the 
teams smaller.  ... both good things.)
I think we all need to take a break ... for about a week.  We should think 
about how to organize the team, and then after the week is over, come back 
together and persent our plans.  ... then we should select about 4 - 5 people 
to get together and create a design strategy (a plan as to how we can ge this 
done and how to get organized) meanwhile the rest of us do nothing.  After they 
are done, THEN we can move onto doing something productive.
Guy ... what do you think about this?  We need to do something soon before more 
of us get pissed off like Jess.  ... I suggest we do this.
