At the risk of being accused of shameless self-promotion, this seems very
compatible with my book Gatewatching: Collaborative Online News Production,
which is going to the printers in a few weeks. I have some information
online about it at http://snurb.info/index.php?q=node/28; the Amazon.com
page for it is at http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ISBN=0820474320 (but is
still virtually empty).
