Syndication-Related Document Collection

Bit by bit, document by document, the Syndic8 Documents Collection has grown to over 240 entries. We have links to documents in a plethora of categories, and the documents themselves are all full-text indexed. I do need to spend some time tracking broken and moved documents, but that’s another story.

From time to time an inappropriate document is submitted (and promptly deleted), but by and large things have run well. There’s a phenomemon, noted in The Tipping Point, where people will respect something that is clean and well maintained, and will even go out of their way to help keep it that way. However, once it starts to fall into disrepair, they are happy to help it along the way. World-writable web sites are no different in this regard.
