I must be insane. 

I’m trying to organize a new SOA initiative, to cross some of the remaining boundaries between the different IT groups by taking “central” out of the picture.  I’m trying to get architect-to-architect collaboration in an area where we have not openly shared before.  And I’m trying to do it while still working at my regular work… no extra resources for this part of my job.

So, I’m using a wiki.  Direct.  Immediate.  Unedited.  Completely outside my control.

SOA by wiki. 

Nearly every initiative I’ve ever read about was “SOA by central planning” or “SOA by chaos.”  Most failed. 

Let’s see if coordination get us past the failures of those models.

This should be very interesting.  I’ll let you know how it works out.
