Sam Ruby reports: Open source, open process

Sam Ruby’s eTech preso on launching a wiki to discuss Pie/Echo/Atom development and generating over 1 ,000 pages of notes, discussion, and, yes, arguments.
A parable for the open source world many of us try to live in.
Some quotes:
On a wiki, emotionally charged words tend to be quickly replaced with ones that more effectively make the point that is trying to be made without the distracting histrionics.
The people you most want to contribute have the least amount of time to do so.
