I've been thinking of good ways to increase inter-project communication within my organization. I work in the software architecture office and get a chance to talk to most of the software developers. A lot of them ask questions and/or have a lot of comments to make on random topics. I've been planning on setting up a couple of forums, when I get a chance, but I don't think that's going to be any time soon. I've also wanted to setup .Text for news and possibly event blogging on the architecture site. It might be a good idea to setup project blogs and give developers access to the projects they work for.
Does anyone have any comments on how this setup sounds? I need a way to consolidate employee blogs by project, technology (.NET, J2EE, etc.), and possibly even management. What do you guys think about this? Considering RSS capabilities, this idea is more flexible than the forum idea, so I think it has a lot of merit.
