One advantage formalizing working groups has is that it gives everyone  
a hub to attach to and spin around. Even though it's trendy to  
collaborate in a more informal fashion many people still respond to a  
more structured approach.

In our work at the IIA (www.iia.net.au) we find that formally  
'launching' a VT (Virtual Task force) gives the task a kick and  
attracts more attention amongst the large membership.
