The Joy of Sharing

It started as a question about a stack of paperbacks in the Toronto office.  It turned into a discussion of putting together a list of required reading based on the collective wisdom of Mozilla Canada (currently spread between Orillia, Toronto, Ottawa, and Munich!).  The discussion quickly overwhelmed any ability to take notes, so I created a Google doc, gave everyone access, and in 20 minutes there were 100+ revisions in the history, and we had the result.

Editing is still going on, but this is what the web can mean.  No new software to install, no platform lock-in, just the pure joy of sharing knowledge.  You should all try this at home.


  1. Thanks for sharing. My heart, it is warm.

    Btw, if you haven’t already read Doomsday Book by Connie Willis, hop to it. She kills me.

    That’s a long list. Any chance of a “best of the best” with, say, three or four books on it? :-)

  3. The Rule of Four is a terrible book.
