I'm surprised Marilynne is the first person to mention being on this list
as one of the benefits of e-mail. I've had e-mail for about 4 years. I
am usually on 6 or 7 lists, some professional and some personal. The
professional ones allow me to keep up with the issues in my field(s) of
expertise that I'm not directly involved with. I don't have time to read
all the journals (nor do I wish to), so I can keep abreast of things at
least peripherally this way.

I've been on this list for less than two months and have already received
an enormous amount of valuable information. I don't even know how long
it would have taken me to get this much otherwise, or in what forum.

Whenever I hear about a list on a topic that seems interesting, I hop on
for a while. Sometimes I stay and sometimes not. Sometimes I do it for
professional reasons, sometimes personal. The parent lists I've been on
have been wonderful support groups. I've made friends over email through
some of these. I also keep in touch with several of my siblings and
many friends.

One of the things I'll deeply regret about changing jobs is
losing my internet access (free and unlimited).
