Broad Guidelines for Chapter heads.

 

  • The chapter is like writing a mini book. It needs ideas and opinions from many folks. The more the ideas, the richer is the chapter.

Encourage folks to voice in their experiences.

  • If at some point, you find the task a bit overwhelming, please feel free to pass the baton to another person. A chapter head's task is like that of the captain of the Indian cricket team. In addition to playing, you need to rally the team together.
  • Total number of pages for a chapter - There is no predefined length. It can be from 10 pages to 20 pages. Even more if you need it to be.
  • Feel free to include screenshots to illustrate your points.
  • Stick as far as possible to Indian experiences. You may draw parallel to experiences from other countries.
  • Each chapter head must have atleast one person to help proof read the chapter.
  • Maybe group chapters into sections, so bigger themes may be brought out and duplication of ideas avoided or emphasized.

What's the best collaborative tool?

Which is the best place for all authors to collaborate and put in their writing? It has to be a wiki model where people can add in their input and be able to edit and add value to other chapters. It has to be truly collaborative. What would be your recommendations?

  • Writely (currently, they have closed new registrations. Will soon open after migrating their systems with Google)
  • Writeboard - A tool for collaborative writing from 37 signals

 

Discussion

Q. Is your view of this book strictly Indian? What about Indians in diaspora? Or Indians in non-geographic places like MySpace? - Phil Wolff
