Our conversation today seemed to orbit a question. How does one author, hoping to write together with other authors, discover what the others have written lately?
If we wish to join a Chorus of Voices, where would we find the chorus, and how do we hear the other voices?
Many examples were explored for how to discover collaborations. Many of the examples pivoted around wiki's use of the Neighborhood.
Ward described his wiki conversation with Thompson as an especially informative experience. I have constructed an experiment using the Activity Plugin and the Roster Plugin to capture an index into their collaboration.
Marc had many questions about the diagram Ward used in his conversation with Thompson. I gave a demo where I explained what I understood of the program Ward wrote to generate that diagram. Then I constructed a page to see if I could put that diagram to use in my own page.
