+ - AskSlashdot: Lack of status updates by firms a common problem?

I'm not sure how many people face this situation, leading to duplication of effort for the same updates. While I have set up a wiki (http://statusnow.wikispot.org), its utility is dependent upon contributions based on similar experiences with other organizations. Do you think this is a problem worth solving?"
