A wiki way to manage meetings

I hesitate to use the word "badass" on this blog, but the following post provides some examples (including "badass") of how to manage meetings using Wikis.

My favourite suggestion has to be;

"Some meetings are just well-worded email messages and an updated project plan, meaning NO meeting necessary. Trim where you can. People loathe meetings, and the people who love them usually have something wrong with them.

Wiki tip: This is why a meeting should start with the wiki page to construct the agenda. If it’s clear that the items don’t need much discussion, and aren’t worthy of setting aside time for a meeting. Just craft a clear message on the wiki page, and send out a quick email with a link to the page. Then be sure to monitor comments on the page, and respond to questions & concerns."
