>Do you feel that weblogs are bad models for debates?

I find the wiki and weblog tools available today to be inferior to
mailman for debates, and it will take alot of work to develop WikiNG
into a serious contender. I suspect the sticky points will be:

1. The ability to read without continuous network connection.

2. A user interface that is not encumbered with transatlantic
   http round-trips for each user interaction.

>i see them [weblogs and wikis] as better than just

(Ive snipped those two comments out of context, and I hope it doesnt
misrepresent Ken)

I agree email alone is inadequate.... Please dont misunderstand me: I
am *not* advocating that.

Wikis work well for consolidating documents once a rough concensus has
been reached. My preference is that the discussion leading up to that
concensus takes place on zope-dev.
