Comment MediaWiki + job swapping (Score 2, Insightful) 401

Choose any goddamn thing to start documenting (I use MediaWiki, since everybody seems to have some experience with Wikipedia nowadays, so it's not so jarring). Job swapping is essential, since you'll never know how good your doco is until you test it. Choose the best communicator with skillset A, the best communicator with skillset B, and let A do B's job with B watching over, documenting all the way. Swap and repeat. Do the same thing with all other combinations of skillsets you've got. Then test again: when A takes a day off, find a B to replace him/her as a stand-in. See how well he does. If it's not tested, it's useless.

Submission + - FCC Order scolds Comcast for changing story on P2P (arstechnica.com)

negRo_slim writes: "Comcast has 30 days to disclose the details of its "unreasonable network management practices" to the Federal Communications Commission, the agency warned Wednesday morning as it released its full, 67-page Order. As FCC Chair Kevin Martin said it would, the Commission's Order rejects the ISP giant's insistence that its handling of peer-to-peer applications was necessary. "We conclude that the company's discriminatory and arbitrary practice unduly squelches the dynamic benefits of an open and accessible Internet," the agency declares."
