that's an interesting point. I've looked at the site and I was
impressed ("wow, that looks great!"). It actually resonates with
something I have been playing with in my mind:
Take, what we've created, and use it in some different way.
For me it would be: Do it in a personally rewarding way.
I'm thinking about this:
1. Personal benefit - I need some place to organize ideas, write down
things I've learned, so I can build my knowledge base. I could use
this site to record that stuff. (Well, I'm still reluctant, but I will
work on my reluctance).
2. Bring in some "social" thing
People are using blogs to present themselves, store some ideas, share
an opinion. Also people keep different lists on-line (like book
lists). How can we bring those together? Do some integration?
Authors on InfoQ sometimes do that - they post links to different blog
items, which talk about the same idea and add narrative to those.
3. Use existing groups
Personally, I follow XP and Scrum yahoo groups. And I'm not able to
keep up. Sometimes there are great ideas there, lying around, often
forgotten after discussion is over.
Do you extract information from those in a systematic way? Just doing
that may bring new insights and knowledge.
Well, I don't do that, but I understand why (too much interesting
stuff, I should concentrate on things, that really relate to me, but I
don't - again, why?). Again, I've seen InfoQ articles based purely on
yahoo group posts - interesting.
How can we provoke people on those groups to do that themselves?
Note to myself: if we want to keep a structure, there should be
structure promoting something (rules?). E.g. collective ownership
(structure promoting factor) vs. personal satisfaction (content
