In Search of…Content Crowdsourcing

I have been asked to participate in working group that is looking into several areas of interest around the future of content publishing at Microsoft in a crowdsourcing world. You can read one take about that world in the Wired magazine article The Rise of Crowdsourcing.

Any feedback on the MSDN Wiki? Should TechNet follow what MSDN has done here?

One interesting comment on Soma's blog announcement to kick-start the discussion:

Personally, I turn to reputable dev blogs when I absolutely positively have to find the right info to solve those intractable coding issues that arise from time to time...then if all else fails, I search the official docs ;). Well,...


Do you have opinions, resources, hopes+dreams, fears+concerns about what a "wikipedia" approach to technical content at Microsoft might mean?  Is that even the right model to think about?
