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

dsushant writes: Recently, I encountered a problem while seeking POI data sets. Some companies had announced plans to provide access to data. However, there was no further news & I had to contact them for updates. This led to a series of email's & expected delays.

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?
