> What is success criteria of a collaboration facility?

My points:
1. A collaboration facility ideally should adress both individuals and
2. It should care to facilitate re-use of information and should have
a clear profile of what is the "product" that is to be the outcome of
the collaboration
3. It probably works best if the number of collaborators and scope of
collaboration is large. The present model, however, seem to be small
focussed interest sites, where each special interest is investing
large resources to redevelop the wheel.

I personally believe the community needs a wiki-like collaboration facility.

We have started species-id.net but are very open to larger ideas.
