The launch of an effort to define a new set of standards for syndication, posting, and archiving of blogs was birthed on a wiki: http://www.intertwingly.net/wiki/pie/. This was initially hailed, then decried, and defended. Ultimately this lead to statements like wiki being used as a bad BBS... paving the way for the inevitable continued justification of the Wiki-Way™ in the case that Atom were to fail.

This is an interactive presentation on the reasons why a wiki was initially chosen for this particular effort, exploring what worked, what didn't work as well, and what was learned.

Blogs, mailing lists, and face-to-face meetings will also be discussed as complementary adjucts to the wiki.
