One example of this:  The Wikki.

Notice how slow Asterisk documentation was in comming.  Months and
no updates to the users manual.  Then came a Wikki where _anyone_
could write a page and now there are hundres of pages, so many that
finding stuff takes a while.  Fix things up so people can contribute
and see the result of their contribution QUICKLY (in hours not
weeks or months) and things will grow fast.
