When my co-writer saw my idea on this forum for using a blog to host doc
reviews, she recounted her failure to get reviewers to review documents
with Acrobat's annotation tools, by opening them from a common server.

In contrast, as someone here mentioned, email has the advantage of
keeping the subject in front of everyone, and I have received some
useful comments through emailed reply-all flurries.

Perhaps managerial enforcement of doc signoffs is the critical element
in making a blog (or something similar) successful as a doc review site.
Too often, people consider doc reviews as a low-priority task.

As a silver lining, now Walt Campbell has got me enthused about the
possibility of using a wiki for mutual creation and management of
internal documentation -- process docs, style guides, use of software
