Re: Making the Tao a web page

This, I think, is the show-stopper.  Back when the internet started
to become popular a well-known open access advocate put his system,
which had a passwordless root account, online, and it was basically
vandalized immediately, then vandalized again, and again, and again,
until he finally surrendered.  I really prefer to keep things as
open as possible and I would love it if the Tao were a wiki article,
but transitioning to that model would essentially mean making a
commitment for the life of the page to keeping a very close eye on
it with a quick response to vandalism.

I also think that enough of our process is actually disputed to make
a living document hard to handle.  At least with an RFC we can say
"this is what we thought it was on a given date, with considerable
review prior to publication."
