I am very pleased to see the Electronics & Robotics site go live. I am not so pleased, however, to see it seeded with the content from chiphacker.com, because that content had a marked bias towards the hobbyist end of electronics.
Stackoverflow has a fairly nice balance of rigorousness / accessibility; you can post both basic programming questions and serious computer science questions and both will be answered, so there's enough critical mass on both ends of the spectrum. The same goes for photo.stackexchange.com and math.stackexchange.com. (although I think the latter tends a little towards the academic end of the spectrum; it morphed a little bit from the way it started which was more balanced)
I would really like to see this site have some rigor of how to do things the right* way. While the "right" way has different meaning in the professional sense and the hobbyist sense, because of cost + other logistical issues, if this site biases towards the hobbyist perspective, I think it will shift markedly towards that end.
How can we keep this site balanced in scope to attract both hobbyists and career electrical/electronic engineers? (Or should we?)
edit/addendum: *there is not one single "right" way. I said "right" way(s) in opposition to wrong ways. I have seen many bad circuits in publications like EDN -- without the ability for the community to describe why a circuit is bad, a circuit with errors perpetuates itself among the community as a whole. I've also posted a follow-up as an answer below.
