The report divides into four sections:

1. Event Coordination. When we schedule meetings we eventually agree on a time, a place, and a group of participants. But the protocol isn't just about synchronizing calendars. It also involves discussion and negotiation. Web-based services can help us manage both the structured and semi-structured aspects of event coordination.

2. Group Discussion. Mailing lists, the dominant mode of group messaging, are problematic. Fortunately there are a variety of alternatives that can make shared discussion spaces easier to create, and more effective to use.

3. Broadcasting and Monitoring News. The physics e-print archive at www.arxiv.org has transformed the way scientists publicize their own work, and monitor the work of colleagues. A new standard for content syndication on the web can generalize and extend this process.

4. Scientific Publishing. TeX and LaTeX define scientific publishing for a generation of scientists. But these formats don't integrate directly into the shared spaces of the Web. The rise of XML as a universal markup language, along with vocabularies such as MathML (for mathematical notation) and SVG (for scalable vector graphics), suggests that the Web may yet reach its original collaborative goal.


This would make a great Tiki profile!
