An oldie but goodie: What may be the granddaddy of the thinking on SJ. An extremely good post from 2006 by Adrian Holovarty about how SJ isn’t in conflict with the notion of writing stories – but it simply helps extract more value from stories down the road.
A critical point he notes is simply the logistical difficulty of storing information in any structured form, and the need for CMSs and other technological fixes to make this easy. As I mentioned in another post, one big step would be for Google or WordPress (is anyone listening?) to build out blogging software that would allow for easier input of standardized, structured information – and, to give people the instant feedback we all crave, some way of visualizing the aggregate data from everyone else.
