I dont agree with the commercial side of your response. The great thing
about Midrange-L is that it is not run on a commercial basis, which is
why people feel free to use and contribute to it.

I agree.

But would only do it for two reasons:

        1) To expand the number of people who get the information.  The
email
should go to more people than on the list and have a click through that
would encourage subscribers to Midrange-L

        2) To sell advertising sponsorships and the revenue would help
Midrange-L.

I would suggest that a deal be set up with one of the AS/400 technical
publications.  They would provide the technical content to help edit the
e-zine.  They would cross promotional opportunities for a joint
relationship.

The method to create the content would be to put out technical questions
to
the Midrange-L list  that would be responded to privately, gathered up
and
put together and published in the e-zine.
