I brought these comments from Vern Hamberg over from the Tech List, because
I thought they were interesting, as well as those of Mike Crump...!>

Something happened to my subscription to NEWS/Wire, back when they upgraded
the system.  (It showed up for a time afterwards, but then disappeared
again...?!?)  I haven't had a chance to go back and read this article, but
there are good points for discussion in these posts, imv (in my view).

I especially agree with the positive comments about Ms. Lucas...!!  But I
would have to assume that the majority of the work of the iNation, and the
members of the iFreedom Council, goes on "behind the scenes"...  So don't
know whether there will be much further discussion on this thread, or not...

| In the 10/24 NEWS/Wire, there's something about citizen feelings about
| iNation. Here's one

| Now this group, and others, like Ignite400, provide a lot of collaborative
| function. Are they publicized at iNation?
| And David has added new stuff as it seems useful - like the XML stuff. And
| the newsgroup hook.
| Maybe David's ready to put this on a SameTime server, too?   <g>
| But my point is, partly, how to coordinate these things. There are google
| groups on the 400, there may be Yahoo groups. NEWSwire and its parent,
| other places, all have good info and have different missions and targets.
| Maybe iNation could list these, with the requisite IBM legal disclaimers
| and waivers of responsibility ;-)
| BTW, I got going with this group around '97 or '98, when Booth and I got a
| joint award for the most posts - the nice button.
