Doing a bit of #CrossStitch. Kinda getting the hang of it
We're using email+etherpad now. This group is relatively distributed, and we write things asynchronisly. If I write a thing, I don't know who has looked at it and thinks it's OK. If someone rewrites a section, how do they know if the others are OK with it? That's the problems I'd like software to help.
Dear LazyWeb: Is there any web software for collaborative editing of documents, which is more than a wiki's "last edit wins" approach?
e.g. I have ~5 people in a group and want to write something that requires X people to vote/approve a document. Anyone can suggest a change, but that must be approved too.
Does this exist?
I've got a solution to the recycling problem. Pass a law that says that every company has to accept back any products they provide, when they reach end-of-life. So, for example, retailers would have to accept packaging waste back from customers, and the wholesaler that sold them the product would have to accept it back from them. Internalizing the cost of dealing with waste would motivate companies to make less disposable stuff, and find ways to make it easier to recycle:

Well that's an interesting survey

I wonder if Irish political parties are going around England interviewing Brits about Ireland & Brexit. Some Brits have condescending attitudes toward Ireland. Videos of some posh Brit saying "the Southern Irish should just leave the EU so we can brexit" would be very useful in the next EU referendum in Ireland. "look how much EU membership pisses off the Brits! Vote yes" isn't an ineffective strategy...
Got a #CrossStitch kit. Got everything ready. I have cut the tip of my finger, and I dropped a needle and found it embedded in my leg the next morning.
This is dangerous stuff!
