Usenix Newsletter

In the letter from John Donnelly regarding the Boston Meeting, he mentioned the funding of a newsletter for Usenix. I just want to put in my bid for an "electronic newsletter" and not a physical (paper) one. It would seem to be a waste of paper and stamps to not take advantage of the net for distribution...

Mailing lists multiply the power of email by enabling you to send a message to many people across the Internet who are interested in the same subject, and enables readers to monitor interesting discussions on several subjects at once with automated assistance and little effort.

Anyone with email access can subscribe to mailing lists on subjects they find interesting and obtain free, peer-reviewed, up-to-date information not available anywhere else. The following sections provide more information:

    • One-to-many communication
    • Confidentiality
    • Review
    • Redistribution
    • Archiving

Many list commands are described in this section, so you may wish to review the section on notation describing conventions about command placeholders and options.
