Via Roland Tanglao I came across Greg Wilson’s posting on making governance discoverable and providing basic documentation, of a community of contributors to open source projects. It coincides with discussing documenting precisely such key and elemental things for my company, to have a better on-ramp for new team members as well as provide colleagues with better agency to do things themselves. It also reminds me of how Basecamp documents and describes their preferred modes of communication (asynchronous long form being the default), and it triggered some ideas on how to better engage the existing community and new networks around the NGO I chair.

Bookmarked Guide to Internal Communication, the Basecamp Way

Found via Peter Rukavina. This guide contains a lot of interesting nuggets that apply to my company too. There are some longstanding differences in preference in our team about real time communications and remote working. Me with a strong preference for remote and asynchronous as default. This guide may serve well for further internal conversations.
