I would rather the vision be developed in an open public way
than live solely in the mind of some dictator who optionally
(as a "bonus") would actually communicate and work with
other community members.

Unfortunately it isn't possible for everyone who wants to
participate to be able to go to a physical meeting, but I
know for the spins meeting we did at the last FUDcon we were
very careful to make sure we took very good notes [1] and
blogged about it as well.

Once the story is developed it's easier to tell it and add
on to it I think. But developing it is a big step I'm not
sure of any better way to get done than a physical
brainstorming meeting.
