Jeremy, Thanks for your note. And what appears to be a warning. 

I am encouraged by responses and by 
coments from AoIR members as well 
as people on other lists, people in the community, as well as colleagues. I 
intervened 
in an thread concerning revision to 
email archives, and a remarkable comment 
by my former colleague Sean Cubitt. 
'one day the world will mourn the loss of my juvenilia' in the context of the revision 
of email archives. 


It is refreshing to see a turnabout 
in AoIR around questions of social inclusion 
and it is clear that my intervention has 
been successful to the degree that areas 
that should have been subject to research 
are now being considered. There remain large 
areas of internet not yet referenced 
and there are some keys to what these may be in some of the posts since my intervention. I look forward to teasing reaction out further. 

What I am doing is necessary. I suggest you 
help highlight abuses in scholarship and 
in the industry otherwise people will wonder 
what your motives are in not doing so. 

I am hardly a 'newbie'. I employ strategies and tactics contingent to the lists response and lack of it. Did you read my introduction to AIR-L in January 2002?
