Thanks for the welcomes :) Appreciate the pointers to GroupThink, BarnRaising, VetoTopic, and ConsensusGroup!!
''I like your new page on ConsensusPolling. Most interesting. Take a look at VetoTopic for something vaguely related. Any external links that might be useful? -- ChrisPurcell
It is an idea that is just developing so I don't have any useful external links yet. I'm looking but haven't found nor created anything important yet.
A memory from WikiSym. -- HelmutLeitner
OnlyIf seems to work as a topic name for FundableDotOrg, PledgeBank, and ConsensusPolling type activities. Alternatively OnlyIfCommitments? or some other topic might be better?
TedErnst and I have decided to convene a WikiVanning!!
I realize that I'm adding a lot quite quickly to MeatBall ... I'll let the bits I've dropped in today settle for a while before I add more. I've been trying to figure out how to add in ideas from other communities I'm a part of and finding it challenging. I'm beginning to wonder whether wiki scales? How many very active contributors can a wiki sustain while still being a community? Or more importantly, can I be part of this community without being overwhelming? I'm not asking for responses to this, just letting the good MeatBall folkses know that I understand how disruptive to community a NewComer (including/especially this NewComer) can be.
Brandon, I read that you "...basically wrote my dissertation using a hybrid of emacs-wiki and LaTeX modes...", an experience surely interesting for many others out there. Could you write DissertationUsingWiki?? -- HelmutLeitner
Have you seen OpenAcademics? --TedErnst
Give me a call today? --TedErnst
We've standardized on [RecentChangesCamp] as the name and now we are homing in on a theme. If you care, please register your thoughts at http://RecentChangesCamp.org/Theme -- BrandonCsSanders
