Maybe there's too much intellectualization going on for you guys' own good
here? Creating IF isn't a theoretical exercise, it's a matter of authorial
action. You get a team of people together and you create a work. IMHO you
should be focusing on what it takes for a team of authors to
communicate/coordinate/collaborate with each other and get something done.
What happens when authors of compatible but certainly non-identical
viewpoints interact to create a work? What about this production process
becomes entertaining for an audience, and what becomes irritating?
