Which seems to me to be a strong argument for placing the DRAFT
documents online -- to facilitate the development of the "real time"
The development of the internet is based on the RFC -- Request for
Comments -- process with beings with rough drafts, rewrites, etc.
Some of the most recent uses of the internet have pushed this forward
e.g. MoveOn.Orgs "Bush in 30 Seconds" project
which encouraged people to video ads, submit them, peer-to-peer review
them, vote for finalists, and cap it with an awards program.
The key of an open process like this is getting lots of ideas in at the
rather than batting over word choices at the end.
