I was thinking of this as similar to the code4libcon process: put up
lots of proposals, set some kind of target size, and open up voting,
maybe with some tampering by the editor(s) to make sure the final
product has some balance. I had thought about an "All-Star Game" rule as
well: every blog in Planet Code4Lib gets at least one posting (in the
interests of boosting sales).
So I don't see any problem with nominating your own stuff (as I did,
indirectly), but I'd rather not see nominations removed - you may not be
the best judge of your own stuff, after all. But maybe we could allow
author's comments on the nomination list ("Please don't vote for this,
that one's better") to guide the process. Can that wiki do tables? I'd
like to add a wordcount column as well (people can use the FF wordcount
extension) so we can get a sense of the size of the thing.

Wait, so should I not have been adding posts from various blogs myself?
I thought the idea was that any of us could nominate posts from others'
blogs by adding them to the wiki, and then we'd all vote... or did you
just mean that you think Peter (or The Editors, Whomever They Shall Be)
should have ultimate say of which voted-on posts go into the final
collection, and in what order, etc.?
