It's the topic, stupid...

 From Mr. Jarvis...

"Instead, I want a page, a site, a thing that is created, curated, edited, and discussed. Its a blog that treats a topic as an ongoing and cumulative process of learning, digging, correcting, asking, answering. Its also a wiki that keeps a snapshot of the latest knowledge and background. Its an aggregator that provides annotated links to experts, coverage, opinion, perspective, source material. Its a discussion that doesnt just blather but that tries to accomplish something (an extension of an article like this one that asks what options there are to bailout a bailout). Its collaborative and distributed and open but organized."
