Making Wiki's Conversational: Get the RSS Right
GTDWikiDiscussion. I have been frustrated by the ways that wikis provide RSS feeds. These are basically announcements of the fact of change, but there are no changes. Furthermore, the announcement is something like
That doesn’t work for me. It’s like content-free voicemail messages that just tell me someone else called or that they want me to call them and there’s nothing conversational about it. It is the absence of conversational structure that dawned on me and led to this comment in sideways-response to a question from Jeff Sandquist:
There just needs to be a way to weave in and out of the conversation that a wiki collaboration is, and that means not only knowing that someone else has spoken, but what they have said before choosing to divert one’s attention to the wiki itself. I can drag the feed note (in Outlook via NewsGator for me) into a GTD item or something that makes a synch point between my asynchronous life and whatever is coinciding on the wiki.
I figure this is already being thought about by someone somewhere, but I haven’t run across it and in the mood to speak up.
