Olson ( WB0YQM ) Becca Brackett ( N0CAH ) 1221 Russell Av N Minneapolis, MN 55411 (612) 588-9532 (Internet: fred%jwh [at] vx.cis.umn.edu) COHOUSING-L is *our* list It's after midnight and I have 5 articles to post to COHOUSING-L . Hopefully this will help encourage others to contribute. Be assured that I am not likely to be this prolific very often. I do have some files I'll be posting later -- don't want to inundate anyone. For this list to maintain a reasonable level of activity many of us need to contribute. At this stage we can't all be 'lurkers'... Fortunately the mailing list format is somewhat immune to the attrition and downward spiral phenomenon that inactive bbs or usenet type newsgroups suffer. (Nobody posts articles because so few read/respond and since nobody posts anything nobody checks in...) Mailing lists derive a bit of resistance since most of us check our mail independent of the level of COHOUSING-L activity. So that when there is some we will see it 'cause it shows up in our mailbox. On the other hand some information that makes reading the list worthwhile is a big advantage. I read the Peru list primarily because there is one person who posts relevant articles drawn from the Lexus/Nexus service. I don't know of a better way to keep up on Peru news. (This person had been advised that as long as no money was charged such posting was legal.) Similarly cross posting relevant articles from other electronic discussions such as Usenet is great. If anyone has access to a page scanner and OCR software, which I understand this is becoming more practical all the time, there are lots of articles in print that could use wider distribution... I suppose there may even be some amongst us whose typing (unlike mine) makes keying in some articles a reasonable possibility... Probing, well conceived and articulated questions and opinions can also stimulate fruitful discussion. A more technical detail - article subjects. Please put some care into composing the article subject line. It greatly facilitates browsing, looking up, archiving and references to articles. In conclusion let me encourage subscribers to contribute what they can. This list is *our* list and its content will come from our collective efforts. Thanks, Fred
