That is more or less the point IMO. Yet I see the two sides of the
coin: on one side people don't blog about what they are doing since a.
it's too demanding (here micro-blogging kind of things would help) and
b. if what they did is not yet in a presentable state they won't talk
about it. I think it would be better to have some kind of very
informal service instead for "internal use only" (with this I don't
mean it shouldn't be public).
The main problem from another developer's perspective however is
different: I want to know who is working on what, so I don't really
need an "activity stream", but rather something that is organized in
some way (timestamps may help however). E.g., I want to know who is
working on LV2 hosts, who is working on audio programming languages,
etc. It would be cool if a search could be done on a tag-basis, so to
avoid useless hierarchies. The two things (activity stream and
"organized content", let's say) are not mutually exclusive, yet I
don't know of any such service.
Coming back to earth, I think a wiki would be fine if people get
involved... but they won't, I'm pretty sure... unless it gets big
enough (good night!)
(Jabber/XMPP is a case apart, I think it is a superior kind of thing,
since it can be quite easily integrated into whatever service you may
offer... but this is all another story?).
> AFAIK, Linux.com was supposed to become a kind of social service.
Didn't know about it, that would be great (or maybe not?)
P.S.: unanimous consent and/or LAD endorsement is not needed to start
doing something like this, but at the moment I have other
priorities... I was just hoping that it could inspire/motivate
somebody else. At least the idea stands here in the ml archives as a
form of minuting (recursively, with such a service the idea would
always be there :-P)
