I think a hybrid approach makes most sense. We can have a web resource that lists standards and links to guidance documents and a wikipedia page. And we can also give some best practice information on our site for each standard. I suspect that will make our lives much easier. We still need to figure out where the website will live and what it will look like. But the "what will it look like" can be figured out later. Since we're not starting from scratch with each standard's listing - we aren't recording as much information about each standard - we could probably reconfigure the Google Docs spreadsheet to work for us without having to figure out a more advanced data entry/retrieval utility. 

In other words, the work could probably move forward considerably faster and more easily.

Subject: Re: [NDSA-STANDARDS] Wikipedia for Standards Survey?

I also like the idea of using Wikipedia for descriptions of Dig.
Pres.-related standards. I still think there's value though in including best practices and guidance documents, and also early and in-process standards efforts, which don't seem amenable to their own Wikipedia pages (but I'd like to hear others' thoughts on this). Maybe we could do some hybrid solution where we have a website as Jimi suggested that can link to descriptions in Wikipedia where they exist, or contain info about the ones that aren't "Wikipedia-worthy" (which is a funny notion).
This website could also have space for institutional usage/trend information that we could gather from the related survey we discussed on the last call.
