* Mailing lists

Not a replacement for mailing list. Mailing-lists are still the main 
communication tool for many of our activities:
	- Technical discussions
	- Issues tracking
	- Comments on Specifications

It's very important to keep it as it is to not miss any issues, or 
concerns that people have about a technology. If there are too many 
sources of information for issues tracking, we will miss them and 
that's not good at all.


* Weblogs

As another form of publishing, helping people inside the Team to get 
feedback on a few things, to share our own hacks or progress on things, 
etc. As It has been said, I think the "weblog form" is more accessible 
than a mailing-list for many persons. It would help a better 
interaction.
I know that many persons in the W3C Team have very valuable 
technological knowledge and a simple way to share it and better (in 
terms of presentation) than the www-archive [1] mailing list would be 
great.

But to convince people inside the W3C Team that the effort is 
worthwhile, we need your testimonials AND the reasons why you think 
it's a good idea or a bad idea.
