Hot Topics in TidBITS Talk/16-Aug-04

The second URL below each thread description points to the discussion on our Web Crossing server, which will be much faster.

TidBITS Expo Events Recap

As readers of TidBITS Talk know, I held a pair of informal events at Macworld Expo in New York last month. I chose not to announce them in TidBITS itself (though they were on the Hess Events List) to keep them to a manageable size.

Mailing List Manners 101

It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of mailing lists. I both subscribe to and operate a number of lists on many topics, and I spend much of my day communicating professionally and personally in these discussion groups. And yet, I'm troubled by behaviors I see in most lists
