SAP's Business Process Expert Community is creating a wiki-published book using a process that adds community input to work created by professional writers. Dan Woods, CTO and Editor of Evolved Media, leads the writing team and presents an argument that someone must go first when creating great content, then the community can help. Mark Finnern, Community Evangelist for SAP Developer Network and the Business Process Expert Community argues that the community must be at the center of the effort and content will flow from their interests. Woods, who has written 16 books and created many large scale wikis, and Finnern, who has participated in the birth and growth of one of the largest developer communities on the web for more than 5 years, both have strong arguments to back up their views.
