A connection(s) question for the audience

The past 1 1/2 years has lead to a lot of changes in my day to day job.  Aside from the usual Domino stuff, I have been involved heavily in Traveler, Google Apps and more recently security.  Also connections.  Quite a bit of connections recently.  Aside from hating the product with a passion when it first came out (due to having to install Connections 1.0) I have come to two conclusions.

1.  IMO there is little coherrant documentation on the installation with suffiient explanation to educate admins on “what” they are doing and potential implications.  I like good documentation.  I like to think that I write good documentation.  And bad documentation drives me nuts.

2. Once Connections is installed on a site, it does provide value if championed and used correctly.

So, I have been chatting with my partner in crime, Gab Davis on an idea I have been toying with.  I would like to see if there is any interest in the crowd as we both think it is a reasonable sized undertaking.   What if we documented a complete installation of Connections under what we could consider a starter deployment, and explain the products as we go.  By that I mean, starting with operating system level, and taking you through the installation, configuration, bolt on of moving parts and eventual administration of Connections.  I reckon this would take about 25-30 blog posts to get to a production”ish” deployment.  Possibly using google video for some of it too.

If you think it would be useful, let us know in the comments.  If you think the documentation is good enough out there and something more advanced is needed, that’s cool too.

Would this be of interest?

Starting Location: Esbjerg Ending Location: Belfast Total Distance Traveled (including this day): 7331km  Bike Comfort Factor (1-10) :3 “Tired” Factor (1-10) :8 And so we began our final day.  Arriving at Harwich at 1pm, we rode reasonably fresh back to Cambridge, where we said goodbye to another member.  Chris Harris was almost home, so we parted where we met, and only Roy and I were left.

The objective this day was to get to A [read] Keywords: facebook wiki

Starting Location: Flåm Ending Location: Rollag Total Distance Traveled (including this day): 5250km  Bike Comfort Factor (1-10) :6 “Tired” Factor (1-10) :6   After the previous day, it was a slow start to the morning.  Everyone slept until 8.30 (give or take) and we all emerged from our respective tents a bit slower than usual (Except for Arvid, whom I decided was a machine at this stage).   Gregg had shared a tent with Chris again.  You could tell by looking at Chris.

We woke up later than usual (about 9am).  At this point I hinted that the bike will be inserted into [read] Keywords: facebook wiki
