I'd like to suggest some, but I'm having the busiest week of the year here so far, and it looks like I'm going to be somewhat distracted for the next week or two.
However - as a side thread to ET-TVTM perhaps we can use this as a space to talk about what's available and/or secure, and settle on something that can be used for future off-line project work.
I would imagine something with some or all of these features, as a minimum:
One or more forum coordinators to facilitate each project
Access limited to specific individuals on a per-project basis, with an option to open discussions later
A permanent (searchable?) record of discussions for use as a reference
Possibly document prep with a change log, and open access for docs that have been signed off
A teleconf feature for live discussions
I have in mind an environment that works for formal papers, media projects, and general - er - I suppose we're going to have to call it consultancy, won't we?
Does something like this exist? What tools are out there already? Is there anything else needed in the way of features? Could some patchwork solution be put together from other tools?
And those kinds of questions - moreso than answers at the moment, but I hope this diary can turn up some of those.
