web 2.0 for development

Editing… or morderating a network discussion?

Leave a comment

Setting up networks is different from setting up a website. Networks focus on discussions, they need conversations and foster interaction. And discussions are very different from documents. Discussions, ideas, personal points of view cannot be EDITED. They can be MODERATED. That is to say that conversations can be directed and channeled into some lines, fueled with new topics, managed to be fruitful as possible. But external intervention cannot go further than that.

So EDITING is not the correct approach while MODERATION is much more suitable when thinking about the creation of a network.
