Subject: RE: [chairs] TC FAQ Template

- RSS is an option in either one today.
- Forums tend to be set up a little better for "watch this topic and let me know whenever updated"
- I do like the editorial control of the BLOG
- How would you handle drive-bys in either scenario?
Register to post (fine) email confirmation with IP legalese click to register account (fine)
But what if we wanted to...Do we let a drive-by start a Blog section?  Do we moderate the comments? Does it come back to the top of the list when someone responds to last weeks issue?
- Blog is perfect for a finite number of [Subcommittee chairs] [good minutes takers] [evangelists] to control outgoing presentation.
I agree that the distinction is blurry.
I like the anonymous readers
Would an early mention in the archived BBS/Blog provide a defense against spurious prior art claims?

The line blurs here - I've seen blogs operated that look and feel identically to forums.
The big + on the blog is the rss feed mechanism.  Plus - I think that most TC chairs would want to manage this somewhat depending on their TC needs.
The ability to have a FAQ built-in to the blog is also appealing - that can be quickly updated to respond to input, etc - the sidebar menuing on blog is perfect for that use.
The member mail archive lists already have that feel - it may be conflicting to have two such.
A forum is a little too ad hoc at times! ; -)

i would offer that a forum is better suited to (persistent) Q&A where  
a blog is more editorially oriented. since i thought that the purpose  
was to allow for some form of reusable public Q&A a forum would be  
the better choice in that it allows users to create topics that can  
start threads of discussion.
