I mentioned this to VDweller and he agreed, the reaction from Europe has been much more positive and more actively interested than the NA one (which is also significant), see here. It's sometimes hard to separate because a lot of Europeans tend to stick to English-language websites and don't care for local sites much, but it's still there, and it's significant.
Personally, I very much agree. Especially that thing about the "mind set".
